It's time for the third annual Garden Poetry Contest, and this year’s theme is “Better Times Ahead.” Send in your original poem of 10 lines or fewer that celebrates (or laments) your garden’s performance during last summer’s miserable drought.

The best submissions will be published in Newsday, and the Garden Detective's three favorites will get a token surprise in the mail.

Email your poem, along with your full name, mailing address and phone number to by May 15, 2011 (addresses and phone numbers will not be published).
