Our new photo challenge is "GARDENS". You can photograph your own garden, or a local garden. It can be a detailed shot or a wide angle view. My image for the banner above was taken at Old Westbury Gardens in Old Westbury NY. If you choose to photograph a public garden, PLEASE include the name & location of the garden. (Optional-a small paragraph of info on the history of your garden or link to info)
What I am looking for is a display of beautiful gardens through out the world. So where ever you may live, find some beautiful gardens(private or open to the public) & show off your photography. Only one can be posted on our challenge blog, but you can add as many as you would like to your blog entry.

It was a pleasure to see the beautiful Westbury Gardens photos. I have been working this past winter to remove all the overgrowth on my property and make the appearance more appealing. I am on my 5th year of the work on my home addition and plan to finally get the building closed in with the doors and window all in place. I will write you more if you like. I want to tell you about the Landscapes through Time with David Dunlop on PBS. He is and artist and Art teacher. He explore the American 19th Century Hudson River Artists and paints and explains color theory. He travels to Europe and does the same thing with it's great impressionistic painters such as Monet, and others. He is on the web and has teaching DVD's for sale. I watch him paint and he helps his students with their paintings. It is warming up today and sunshining and then cloudy, like rain possible, so I must get outside and be active. Mark/Salty
