This summer’s photo contest had a fun twist to it: we asked you to send in your favorite garden photos that fit into four different categories. The categories were Whole Garden Photos, Small Plant Groupings, Pollinators, and Pets and/or Children in the Garden. After looking through hundreds of inspiring entries in all four categories, we were (like always) forced to choose just one photo contest winner for each category. We’ve highlighted the winning photos below and hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Have you been taking photos of your garden throughout the season? Enter them into our Fall Photo Contest!
