Last year I entered a photo contest with 'Dutch Gardens' my favorite plant supply company. I entered the "Best Garden Bed" category with a picture I took of the garden I planted with my Dutch Garden perennials. The garden was in its second year of growth and I was very pleased with my hard work. I had taken the picture, not knowing about the contest, but when I saw the contest I thought this would make a fine entry. Well the year went by and every now and then I would check on all the beautiful entries to the contest and think to myself...this is a good picture...it could win....
This Feburary, the phone rang and it was Dutch Gardens calling to tell me I WON! Not only did I win best garden bed, but I won best in show! David Grist from Dutch Gardens congratulated me and told me to check my email for details on my win. I opened my email and found that I had won $1,100.00 in garden plants and supplies!! You can view my photo on Dutch Gardens web site here http://www.dutchgardens.com/2007%20Photo%20Contest:%20Winners%20and%20Favorites/8154,default,pg.html
Dutch Gardens also sent me a free detailed design for a garden that I plan to plant at the front of my house!
Thank you Dutch Gardens for not only a great garden company but for this wonderful gift!! I can't wait to get started planting!!!
PS this win has inspired me to finally get going on my dream of starting a photography business. So "Pets and Petals Photography" is in the early stages of being formed. Wish me luck!
