July 2016 Meeting

Our 18 July 2016 meeting featured the winning pictures from our annual Photo Contest.  The highly creative members of Gwinnett County Master Gardeners Association use their talents in many ways.  Not only do they have a wonderful eye for designing their gardens but they use the same artistic sense to make beautiful photos.

Becky Panetta did an outstanding job chairing this project and presented us with a beautiful slideshow of the winners.  There were twelve different categories for entries including categories for first time entry and cell phone photos.  A new twist allowed all attending to vote for the Best of Show picture – Lori Prosser’s candid shot of a momma bluebird feeding her baby was first choice!  Winners are listed below; please check out our Photo Gallery category to see all these gorgeous pictures!
