Photo Contest - Past SDHS Garden Tours

Share Your Garden Photos

The contest is now closed, but check out the entries below!

Since our garden and meetings are canceled for the time being, we would like to keep you involved in our Horticultural Community.

In lieu of a garden tour we are asking for members to share their photos from past garden tours with the public.  

We've asked the garden tour chair, John Beaudry, to select his favorite photo from the submittals.  The photographer of the selected photo will receive a hand-crafted wooden bowl made by treasurer, Ray Brooks.  Ray has been providing bowls as door prizes at our meetings for several years and they are one of the most appreciated and sought after door prizes at meetings.
