Summer is almost halfway through and looking at this month's winners of the #autumn and #winter photography competition instils bittersweet feelings.
In June we were inspired by the pictures taken in foreign botanical gardens, far away patios and blooming gardens in your homes.

We are delighted to announce the winners of the May photography competition:

Autumn is a cold season, but when I see how colourful leaves sparkle in the sunlight, as in this scene in Chatsworth Garden, Derbyshire, I feel warm inside and happy. #welovegardens #autumnal
