Lots of time remaining until November 2019 photography contest.  

Your epis will show their best in late spring just asking you to take a photograph of them. So be ready with your camera to capture some pictures and submit them for the Photography contest at the November meeting.  


This is a fun event.  Normally it is only epi gardeners get to show off their plants & blooms but this event lets those that take photographs show off their favorite flowers and photographic talents the pictures entered do not have to be of your flowers you just must be the photographer and a member of SDES.


You will often get a more pleasing picture if you have an uncluttered background behind your epi.  You can do this easily by flash photography in the late evening, moving it to an uncluttered area prior to taking a picture or just putting a sheet of dark paper behind it.
