Our next photo competition is open for entries!
The 'Wettest Winter on Record' is what they've been saying. And don't we know it.
Even as we step into Spring, some of us are still dealing with the after-effects of all that flooding. And all of us are decidedly bored by the thought of yet another rainy day.
With this in mind, our latest photo competition aims to capture the endless rains that have graced the last three months – the theme this time is:
"Plants and Trees in Water"
The low golden sun shining and sparkling on frosty hedges, branches and foliage is a wonder of the season, and is something to be truly celebrated.
The lyrics to "In the bleak midwinter" don't offer the best encouragement for getting out in the garden. But with a few thoughtful planting choices you can be "Walking in a winter wonderland!"
Although you may not want to be out in the garden that much in the depths of winter, it is still important to provide yourself with enticing views from the house.
Most important are front gardens and pathways to your doors. These are places that - in rain, sleet and snow - you'll be passing through on a daily basis.
And it's where you welcome your visitors. These are places you want to feel proud of, and to get great enjoyment from, in all seasons.
The winning photo will be used on our Facebook,
Twitter and Google+ pages for the whole of January!
If you love the outdoors, we're sure that you'll also love wonderful photos of nature.
So, we thought we'd run a little competition to see just what photographic talents are out there when it comes to picturing trees and hedging in the cold.
Even better, we have not one... not two... but three prizes to give away!
