Green World: Entry for Picture This photo contest


Since Earth Day is in two days, it seems particularly apt that the theme for this month’s Picture This photo contest over at Gardening Gone Wild is “Green World.” This is my entry, taken at Chanticleer Garden in Pennsylvania, one of the most incredible gardens I’ve ever seen. If you haven’t visited, you should.

  1. Someday, I swear it, I will go to Chanticleer. Your shot is cool and peaceful, very apt. I wonder how they got the water in the fountain green?

    Maybe it’s from algae growing in the water? I like it though. As for visiting Chanticleer, don’t delay. Because once you see it you’ll want to start planning another visit. —Pam

    Beautiful shot Pam, all the different tones of gray / ice blue, look great set against the pea soup color of the water.
    Good luck in the competition.

    Thanks, ESP. Even in Pennsylvania, I was drawn to the spiky garden. —Pam

  3. Now that is a great shot, good luck!

    It’s a danger garden; of course you like it, Loree. :-) —Pam

    Pam, I love all the different shades of green you’ve included in this photo. -Jean

    I like that too, Jean, with all those fingers of green pointing to the very green water in the urn. —Pam

    I would love to see this in person some time. Great hues of green here. Good luck in the contest.

    Thanks, Lisa. You should book a flight! —Pam

  6. It gets my vote for one of the most interesting and creative gardens I’ve been to, ever! I will have to share some of my shots someday soon.

    Yes, Chanticleer is very creative. And playful. And so beautifully designed. I could go on. I’d love to see your pics sometime. —Pam

    Beautiful photo, Pam. Icy blue-grey and green are the colors I’m thinking of painting my house! Good luck with the contest.

    Thanks. That sounds like a pretty house-color combination, Denise. —Pam
