"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 outselected entries from the contest.
