    Okay, so I haven’t posted regularly for about…oh about five months. If you have missed me…sorry. But the Summer is VERY busy and the Fall is VERY VERY busy. So here I am again.
    Most of my posts will be about gardening, but I will have lots of pictures and humor along the way.

    So just for fun, here are a few questions to get my blog off to a great start.

  • JUNE 2011 PHOTO CONTEST

    Posted on June 2nd, 2011 Pam 47 comments

    June 2nd already—so time for another contest.
    Thanks again for all of those that entered last month, this month should be much bigger and better.
    The winner receives a new 7 inch HD Television, worth $75. (this is really a great little TV!!!!)
    Pictures of the TV will be posted next week.

    NOTE: The subject this month is ‘IN THE GARDEN’. Types of garden pictures are: flowers, fruits, vegetables, people in the garden, blossoms, lawns, beautiful yards and garden layouts.
    Only one picture of each subject may be submitted. Only enter one subject once.

    HERE ARE THE RULES.
    1. You can enter each day if you would like, but send ONLY ONE PHOTOGRAPH EACH DAY.
    2. The contest starts today, June 2, 2011 and goes until June 30, 2011.
    3. Here is the tricky part. Do not duplicate subjects, send only one picture of each subject. For example, if you have five pictures of tulips, send only the best picture you have. Only one picture of a pumpkin, one picture of a flowering apple tree, and one picture of a group of lilies, or a single lilie, you get the idea. So this means, pick your favorite picture of each subject and send it, I only want your best.
    4. ONLY PICTURES TAKEN BY YOU ARE ELIGIBLE, pictures entered by ‘Frank’ must be taken by ‘Frank’.
    5. You can’t submit for someone else, everyone must enter their own pictures, using their own email.
    6. Your pictures are safe with me, I will ONLY use the images to judge the contest.
    7. Here is how to submit a photograph. Use this June 2nd blog to submit your entries. Just add a caption in the comment box, then attach the image using the browse button in the box below the comment box, then click ‘submit comment’.
    8. Bribing the judge (ME) is prohibited, but you can always try.
    9. Remember, enter only one picture per day.
    10. Because this is a family site, keep your photographs child friendly!!!!!
    11. Breaking any rule will disqualify you for that entry and that day.
    12. Any picture that has been used in a prior contest CAN BE USED AGAIN !!!!!!!!

    Good luck everyone, please tell your friends and family to enter.
    Thanks!!!!!!!!
