Picture your garden in the snow

While everyone else is searching for flashlights and batteries and toilet paper, Garden Variety asks you, our intrepid gardeners, to find your cameras.

Take a picture of your garden in the snow and email it to me, and I will post it on Garden Variety! (sun.gardenvariety@gmail.com)

Include your name (just a first name is OK), the town or neighborhood where the picture was taken and, if need be, the identity of the plant, tree or shrub.

Then look for your photo here on Garden Variety. The best photo will win its gardener, what else? A coffee table book of garden photos titled "The Gardens of Glen Burnie." (in Virginia)

Let the rest of the East Coast panic. We know the snow means a warm blanket over the garden and lots of growth in the spring.

About Susan Reimer
Susan Reimer has spent 16 years writing about raising kids - among other topics - in her column for The Baltimore Sun. And every time son Joseph or daughter Jessie passed another milestone - driver's license, college, wedding or a move to a new military duty station - she has planted another garden. Now she will be writing about those gardens - and yours - here on Garden Variety.

Susan isn't an expert gardener, but she wasn't an expert mother, either. Both - the kids and the gardens - seem to be doing well in spite of her.

She lives in Annapolis with her husband, Gary Mihoces, who loves to cut his grass but has noticed that there seems to be less of it every time the kids pass another milestone.
