How does your garden grow

May 27, 2011

Spring is officially here and with warmer weather, locals are planting their flowers, bulbs, and more, to either brighten up the landscape or put fresh foods on the table. We would love to feature you, working or lounging in your garden, but we need your help. Please send in a color photo of yourself, including your first and last name, your town, and tell us a little bit about your garden. We will run photos until the cold weather wilts away all your hard work. Mail them (and a self-addressed, stamped envelope if you want it returned) to The Leader, 15 N.
