The winner of R.S. Walsh Landscaping’s March photo contest is Marianne Pasqual.  The theme of the contest was “Palms in Black and White.” Submitted photos were posted on R.S. Walsh’s In The Garden Facebook and Instagram pages and at the company’s Sanibel garden center.  Visitors to the Facebook and Instagram pages and the garden center were able to vote on their favorites.  Pasqual’s photo received the most votes.   The photo was taken on Sanibel Island at the Island Inn.  She said right after she took the photo, she and her mother enjoyed the hammocks and the palm trees provided just enough shade to sway in the sun.   She will receive a $50 gift certificate to In The Garden and her photo will be printed in local newspapers.  Honorable mentions go to Marletta Short, Laurie Hafener, Darrell Burton, and Cliff Beittel

The theme for April is Living Life on the Wild (Life) Side. The deadline for entries is April 1. Submissions should include the photographer’s name, phone number, location of the photo and a short story behind the picture. Submissions can be sent via e-mail to
