Grand Prize Winner: Monica W. in Chicago, IL. Picture of Tulips & Bleeding Hearts
Monica writes of her city garden, "Our perennial garden is located on the north side of Chicago. It is anchored by a 60 foot silver maple so totally a shade oasis. One of my favorite seasons is spring, when tulips, daffodils, and bleeding hearts appear. Their colorful splendor make the garden a place to relax, read a book or weather permitting enjoy a glass of wine. Photographing the garden is a hobby of mine, trying to capture the changes of each flower every day."
Winner: Linda S. in Pennsylvania. Picture of Sunflowers & Cosmos
