Peeps Show and Garden Candy

Who knew marshmallow treats could inspire such creativity!
I read recently in a local paper Twin City Pioneer Press that they were sponsoring their annual peep contest just in time for the Easter holiday. It was amazing looking at some of the past entries. Then I saw in a magazine an advertisement for a site where one can go to vote for this year's finalists sponsored by the Washington Post. They have a wonderful video explaining each finalist entry. I posted both sites Twin Cities Pioneer Press and Washington Post.
Be sure to check out what's happening with peep contests in your own area. If too late to enter for this year maybe you will find some ideas to use as a holiday centerpiece.
With warmer temperatures and thoughts of spring gardening right around the corner you might be interested in knowing about about a new garden candy variety called Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea. It is a stunning 2010 winner. Check your local landscape nursery for availability.
