Got Garden Photos?
Joseph Tychoneivich, who presented a program on rock gardening for HSCSS last year, has become an editor for Fine Gardening Magazine's Garden Photo of the Day. View samples at http://www.finegardening.com/garden-photo-of-the-day.
The Garden Photo of the Day is a daily blog that features a new garden image each weekday morning. Tychoneivich said he thinks that showing a different side of gardening with hardy cacti and succulents would bring excitement to his blog. He therefore seeks photos of these plants.
As our gardens begin to show blooming plants, HSCSS members who would like to submit images for the Garden Photo of the Day should e-mail their photos to gpod@tauton.com.
When submitting photos for consideration, think about what you love seeing in other peoples' gardens. Is it interesting plants or plant combinations? Cleverly designed hardscape? Cozy seating areas? Pick photos accordingly.
Try to send the highest-resolution photos you can. Some e-mail programs automatically downsize photos when they are attached. Avoid this if possible.
When sending photos, be sure to introduce yourself and tell where you live. Describe what your photos show and tell a little about your gardening history. Plant IDs are helpful, as well. If your photos are chosen, Fine Gardening would love for you to respond to reader comments.
