Flowers aren’t just a focal point in Mike Juddo’s Troy yard, they’re a conversation starter.

There are begonias, shasta daisies, and more. “Gardening is a favorite hobby, and most of the flowers are started from seed indoors in early spring,” says Juddo. “They become a conversation point for passers-by during the season. They are particularly colorful this year!”

Juddo’s photo, “Mid-Summer Color Explosion,” is this week’s winner of the Homestyle Garden Photo Contest. He’ll win a free home or garden book. He’ll also be a finalist for the grand prize, a $100 English Gardens gift card.
