Gardening Gone Wild is hosting their Picture This Photo Contest and this month's theme is awakening. Hot off my honorable mention winning photo from last month (which still thrills me beyond belief), I just had to enter again! I went back and forth right up until the deadline trying to choose the right photo to enter. This shot of lupine starting to emerge was the best I could get of my just waking garden, so it's my official entry. I like how it's dwarfed by the blooming crocuses in the background which gives a sense of scale, is vibrantly colored, and sort of reminds me of palm trees:
This backlit shot of the row of blooming crocuses (I'm sorry, I just can't use croci) with one in focus (VPH called it unreal looking) was a close also ran:
Well I like them both, but let's hope this month's judge (Saxon Holt) likes my entry more too!
