I’m pleased to inform you about our 1st GT Gardening Awards Event. Our site is rather new and we are excited about this first awards event. Your participation, by entering a wonderful presentation of your Garden Lighting Projects, will make this event very special.

Prize

The winner of awards will receive a free one-year subscription to a leading gardening magazine through Amazon.com. Winner may choose one of the following publications:

Category: Garden of Lights

Create a celebration in your gardens by highlighting a garden feature using a lighting element. (Please be safety conscious). The subject may be a tree, bush, sculpture, flower or building structure. The choice is yours. Entries must include a “before” and “after” picture, as well as a written description describing why you made the subject and lighting choices.

Please visit our Awards pages for all the rules about this event. And in case you have any questions, the official discussion forum topic is here.

Good luck!

a yes… to apply some lighting to the withered, frozen remains of the roses climbing up the trellis I made for the Lumberjocks contest… I could wrap some christmas lights around it… that would make any Charlie Brown tree look like the best in show!

The snow and lighting make the entrance to our watergarden look kind of foreboding…tentacles hanging down to eat the unwary visitor. I’ll have to do something a little more inviting for this I think….:)

For all the magic that snowfall brings, that is wicked SPOOKY Bob. Better keep that for Halloween!
