Really looking forward to spring after viewing these photos from the International Garden "Photographer of the Year" contest. The overall winner, Rosanna Castrini, wrote about her submission entitled:
My Prairie Garden
"A corner of sublime 'prairie' in my garden, inspired by contemporary horticultural theories and the practice of 'prairie-planting' gardens. At the beginning of 2013 I decided to remake a narrow flowerbed next to the house, sowing the plants required. I like informal, flowing effects and I chose fast-growing plants: Ammi majus, Hordeum jubatum, and Echinacea purpurea 'Magnus'. Then I documented with photography the evolution of this flowerbed. I was inspired by the soft flow of energy offered by Hordeum jubatum."
This is a versatile contest. The three on the right caught my eye. It is divided into several categories:
