Barefoot Gardeners seek local photographers' entries by May 31

The Barefoot Gardeners Garden Club of Fenwick Island is soliciting photography entries in their Small-Standard Flower Show set for Saturday, June 25. Photography entries must relate to horticulture, gardening or other National Garden Club objectives, as well as the show theme, which is Coasting Along. The theme highlights the necessity to accept the many challenges which present themselves when gardening in the coastal area, like salt water, wind, high tides and shifting shorelines. The Barefoot Gardeners know that there are many wonderful photographs of the flora in the coastal region that would provide a wonderful display for the flower show. Anyone who resides within a 10-mile radius of the site of the show, Brandywine Senior Living at Fenwick Island, is eligible to enter. There is no entry fee. Entries must be received by Tuesday, May 31. They must be single matted, using a white mat, and the maximum exhibit size, including the mat, is to be 8-by-10-inches. No frames are permitted. For more information, contact Lois Twilley at 410-251-2120 or
