Winners for July’s Picture This Photo Contest

Gardening-Gone-Wild-070209-High-Country-Gardens-July-2009-prize-for-Picture-This.jpg-resizedThis month’s subject, Spring Flowering Trees, brought in the most responses we’ve had since starting the contest this spring. Rob Cardillo, our judge, decided on 2 FIRST Prize Winners, 1 Second Place Winner and 4 Runners-Up. Rob has also been kind enough to make comments on all participants’ photos.

Our First Prize Winner from America will receive a fantastic succulent selection from High Country Gardens.

Our First Prize Winner from overseas will receive a different type of gift. We’ve discovered a not-for-profit micro-lending organization, Kiva, that we think is doing some pretty incredible things. Their mission is to connect people through lending for the sake of alleviating poverty. The winner will receive a gift certificate for $50 from Nan and Fran to lend to the entrepreneurs of their choice whose projects are listed on Kiva.

Both winners should contact Fran at fran.sorin@gmail.com in order to receive their rewards.

Here are our winners!
