Dog Days of Summer

Home Outside
Yes, I know, I've been very bad about posting.  The truth is that I've been out of town, I've had guests, the dog ate my computer - well, not that last one!  Anyway, like a lot of you, the heat has gotten me down and I'm ready for cool weather.  This morning's clouds are very welcome!  I'm also ready for a little planning ahead.  Some of us are already discussing our fall gardens, but here's some dreaming that could get you a big prize:

The Garden Writer's Association sent out a press release this week to their members.  Like the GWA, I don't endorse the contents, products or services mentioned in the press release.  Having said that, it sounds like fun to me.

Do you Pinterest?  I do, on a limited basis, because it would be so easy to get sucked into the gorgeous images and ideas and never have time for anything else.  But this is right up my alley!  This is a contest sponsored by a garden design firm.  You set up a Pinterest board and pin images of your dream garden, or elements that you would like in your garden.  The boards will be judged based on creativity, composition, and style.  The winners get some good prizes, including a personalized design for their home landscape.

Even if you don't want to enter, check out the entries (everything is public.)  You may get some good ideas!

See the contest details here.  The links to the entries are in the comments at the bottom of that post.  (So far there's only three entries, so chances to win are good!!!!)

Now I know we have some gifted dreamers out there.  The contest ends at midnight EST on August 19.  (I wonder if they really mean EDT?  Just don't wait til the last minute!)
