Since no one has guessed correctly, though one person got very close, I'll give you a hint. The photos in question were taken in August and I'll bet with a little combing through the archives you could figure out which they are. Another hint -- the rose is not one of them. I guess we'll see who really wants this calendar!
Pardon my lack of posts, but I've been spending my evenings making calls for Hillary to Nevada. So if you live in Nevada and get a call from a woman who says, "Hi, this is Heather from Hillary Clinton's campaign, how are you this evening?" give me a special garden hello.
In this post on September 28th I said I was holding back one photo from the incredible Monarch visit because it was the leading candidate for our Christmas card. Predictably I changed my mind. I started thinking about what I wanted to give all my friends and family for Christmas this year and I had a sudden epiphany...a calendar -- a calendar full of photos of my garden.
So I started combing through my photos and took a wonderful trip down memory lane. VPH and I had much more fun with our first garden than we ever could have imagined. Actually, VPH had a lot more fun than he thought he would, I made him do a lot of the hard work (heavy lifting, digging, watering, etc.) so I was pretty sure I'd have a good time!
This Happy New Year post is so late because I've been waiting until all my friends and family to open their gifts, lest their surprise be ruined by checking in here. The photo that I held back in September became the cover of the calendar (printed by cafepress.com -- I was quite pleased with the quality of the calendars and the price). You'll remember seeing many of the photos before.
Now for something fun -- a contest! I have one calendar left and want to give it away to a reader. There are two instances of photos taken on the same day. The cover and December photos were both taken on September 26th. Two of the other photos were taken on the same day earlier in the summer. The first person to correctly identify both of the other photos wins the calendar. Just leave your response in the comments and then I'll email the winner directly.
