Nancy Bellaire shares her award-winning Maryland garden.
"Do other gardeners have garden fantasies like I do? I have imagined Christopher Lloyd visiting my garden. Since he is one of the world's greatest gardeners, I only hoped that he would find a few spots worthy of a compliment. He has passed so that won't come true, but I did have a great real life experience. My garden club's newsletter related how to enter the Baltimore Sun newspaper's garden contest. I submitted photos and an essay and got the call for the judges to visit my garden. Fortunately for me, my lilies were peaking and the judges were impressed by their color and the textures in my shade gardens. I won the Large Garden contest and had an article and pictures in the paper on July 19th. Since the garden won overall I thought I would submit a few photos as if someone were touring the garden."
