Some of you are aware that our front garden was nominated for a Trillium Award, and WON!!
I was so excited when we got the letter in the mail a couple of weeks ago...
THANK YOU to whomever took the time to nominate us - WE ARE GRATEFUL!!
This is the metal garden ornament we were presented with.
It is to be displayed in the front garden.
The ceremony took place last night at the monthly meeting of the LaSalle Horticultural Society here in town. There are about 75 members, along with a elected Committee that runs it.
Last night's meeting consisted of a speaker from a local tree farm and the presentation of the Trillium Awards.
I have to tell you that I was quite nervous about the whole thing
...to think that MY "little garden" had won an award!!
They told us that many yards were nominated and that they usually award 10 awards,
but this year there were 14 front gardens that won!
Each homeowner was called up and their address was announced,
so that members could find out where the "winning gardens" were should they wish to drive by and check them out.
We were presented with the garden ornament and a certificate of achievement.
Below are pictures I took of the garden this morning.
There are quite a few so I will keep the comments to a minimum...
This is the view from our front door.
The View from the street.
Below is the award in the garden!
We have more EXCITING NEWS as well!!
We were asked to consider putting our gardens in next year's Garden Tour!!
I am quite excited at the prospect, but I could see McG thinking that this might mean extra work for him.
Someone from the Committee will be coming to see our backyard to see if it meets the criteria for the Tour.
I will keep you posted!
Thanks for touring our front garden today...we hope you enjoyed it!!
