Are you ready? It's time for our 14th annual photo contest! Enter your best pictures of the year, for a chance to win a calendar and annual subscription here. Hurry! Deadline for entries is October 21.
I'm so glad you have enjoyed the pictures. We hardly got any snow this year, unlike what seems like the rest of the continent, so I am now worried about winter desiccation. I kind of wish we had a blanket to keep the plants warm from the freakish cold we had this winter. I know you are sick of the snow, though! We're just about in the home stretch...!
Isn't that a nice sight during this month? My crocus didn't seem to last long this year...but they were beautiful while they lasted. The trees have finally budded - I'm worried about a late frost that might nip them. What can you do though...:)
Calgary has a touch of spring this weekend as the weather has warmed some, and also Calgary Hort. Society held
the Garden Show. I volunteered so I did not get to all of the exhibits, but there were lots of interesting gardening ideas there. After my shift, I attended two speakers presentations.
One was "Contain your Enthusiasm" on ideas for containers and gardens in general.
The other was " 36 Perky Perennials" which focussed on plants which do well in our zone.
