If you think your garden or a friend or neighbor's garden is something to behold, the Lexington Council Garden Clubs wants to hear from you for its 2012 Lexington in Bloom contest.
The contest will recognize Fayette County residents and businesses who have made imaginative use of flowers, plants and trees on their property. Enter your own garden or someone else's.
Categories are for amateur-designed residential front yards, professionally designed residential front yards, small gardens at businesses and large gardens at businesses. A fifth category is "miscellaneous," which can include container gardens, balcony gardens, neighborhood association entrances, non-profit entities' gardens, etc.
The deadline to enter is June 8.
Judging, to be done by professionals and experienced gardeners in mid-June, will be based on first impression, use of color and texture, maintenance, plant selection, suitability of design to location and function, and creativity.
Awards will be presented July 1.
