Reader photos: Things are blossoming nicely in the Lowcountry, now show us ‘Beach Scenes’

By Sean Hartman: Wild irises are now in bloom off of Highway 165, near the Ashley River in Summerville.

We just can’t help it: We’re suckers for pretty flower pictures. And readers didn’t disappoint us this week with their images of what’s blossoming in the Lowcountry.

Sean Hartman’s picture of a wild iris off Highway 165 in Summerville is the one we just kept lingering upon. Check out Sunday’s Arts & Culture section to find out more about why we liked it.

Next assignment: Beach scenes.

The rules:

- Send just one (1) photograph to by noon on Thursday, April 16. Include your name, town and where the photo was taken. If you send us multiple photos we will select one randomly.

- We will allow photographs with reasonable watermarks to run in the gallery but for the winning photo that runs in the newspaper we must have a photo that does not have a watermark. If you want to send us one with the watermark (to run online) and one without (to possibly run in the newspaper) please feel free.
