Flowering Dogwood

Ladysmith Pool
WINNER: Pam Fraser Ladysmith Saltaire Garden Club: I have always wanted a pond and when we moved to Ladysmith we were fortunate enough to find a house with a pond already built, plus mature landscaping. This view is from my favourite lunch spot. Because our back yard is sheltered I'm able to sit and enjoy the pond and fish pretty much year round whenever we have a sunny day.

Tomato Hothouse
Wayne Smith Deep Cove Garden Club This photo is taken on my sun deck and shows the amazing tomato crop I got this year 2015. The sun blazed bright this summer perfect weather for growing tomatoes. I watered them steady with a drip tube from a large garbage bin. I feed them a little fertilizer In the water. Today I am freezing bags of tomatoes and canning the rest for soups and stews this winter. This is the best crop I ever got after more than forty years of trying to grow tomatoes. Next year I will plant them the same way and hope for the best weather.
