Flea Market Gardening Contest Winners announced!
June 21, First Day of Summer!
Winner of the Flea Market Gardening summer “Here Comes the Sun” Photo Contest is:
First Place- Linda Anderson Winner of the Barnwood Bloom!
We loved the soft colors and the clever use of wire to attach the pots to the rake. Set in a colorful flower bed, this photo appealed to the judges right away! Congratulations, Linda!
Second Place- Myra Glandon Photo will appear on our summer Facebook page banner
The judges loved the use of the ladder, the color of the drawers and all the old metal containers surrounding. They loved the angel sign, too!
Third Place- Shannon Ellison Mizia Photo will appear on our summer Facebook page banner
This photo just pops with color! The judges liked the reds, blues and yellows, mixed with galvanized containers and the rusty mower.
Fourth Place- Lisa Duncan Leavitt Photo will appear on our summer Facebook page banner
The judges liked the use of the old teal colored gate as a background for the roses to climb next to this path. Very antique and quaint-looking.
So many of the entries were excellent and really wonderful projects…it was extremely difficult to choose the winners and we were very inspired as we know you all were. We’ll be spotlighting many of these gardens as the summer goes on….we need to know more about many of them.
Congratulations to all, as well as to the Honorable Mentions shown in the slideshow below.
June 20– Contest ends, Judging begins!
June 16 – Enter the “Here Comes the Sun!” Photo Contest!
Winners will be chosen in First, Second, Third, and Fourth place and artist Stephie McCarthy will be adding those four winning photos to our new July Facebook page banner.
First Place winner will win a unique, handmade Barnwood Bloom, made by Jeanne Sammons. Winning Barnwood Bloom will look similar to this one shown,…each one is different!
Original ‘Barnwood Bloom’ …On this one the stove top grate frames the stained glass candle holder flower and a patio umbrella spoke was used for the stem…The metal ‘leaves’ are from a pair of brackets. The old barn wood board has a coat of Poly…everything from Flea Marketing! ~~ Jeanne
