Finally, a gardening contest I have a shot at winning. Dr. Delphinium is hosting something for all us brown thumbs out there: an ugly plant contest.

If you think you have a winner, just email in a photo. And include a creative or humorous name for your entry because judges will also give points for that.

The first place winner gets a $500 plant makeover, and 10 runner-ups will get a $25 gift card. Entries must be in by July 31.  For more details and rules visit the website.
