While my camera and I get to know each other, I’m going to share photographs that were named as winners in the BBC’s International Beautiful Garden Photo Contest this week.  I usually blog my own stuff, but these are too good not to have a wider audience.  And I’m sure they’ve delighted millions already.  So, in case you haven’t seen them, these pictures are my idea of highest accomplishment.
