I've been doing a lot more photography and a lot less blogging this summer. Most of my photos have been gardening- or nature-related, but that doesn't make up for not blogging. It does have its rewards - a month or two ago, I found out that our local paper had a weekly photo contest, so I started sending in submissions. They would have a different theme each week, and recently the theme was the "Art of Nature". Since that is what I take more pictures of than anything else, I had a lot to choose from. I narrowed it down to a few and got Robin's help picking the one to submit. I had been enjoying just sending them photos every week, but then I had to go and win.
