Seems appropriate that the winner of our Signs of Spring photo contest is named April. Her photo of a tulip bud won first prize, though there were many great entries.

“Spring is definitely my favorite season,” says April Deering, who gardens in Colorado. “I just love watching everything come to life, with all the colors that are such a relief after the blah-ness of winter. We just moved into our current home this fall. Although we have a lot of work to do, we are excited to have a blank slate to start planning a dream garden space.” For more springtime images, check out selected entries from the contest.
