GARDEN HOME WINS AUTUMN "MOST BEAUTIFUL YARD" AWARD
HELLO & welcome to Garden Daddy here at the urban farm! "I'd like to thank the Academy, my fans...I am just speechless! I love you...I love you all!" That is just this Garden Daddy quoting Corporal Klinger from the TV series "MASH" when he thought an article was being written about him being crazy dressed like Scarlett O'Hara. What a great surprise this morning when someone from the neighborhood association came around and rang the doorbell and when I got there it was one of the ladies from the committee and gave me the LANA Most Beautiful Yard Award sign. Now in the 4-years I have been here in this garden home I have won 4 different awards. That is pretty good I would say.
Of course now that means I am probably out of the running for a good while. But now that they are just doing "seasonal awards" it will take more to win I am sure. I think then I have won for the fall season from what I understand. Anyway...WOW!!! That is all I am saying.....WOW!!! I do get folks just driving by or walking by all the time though and commenting on my yard. And I do try to not only make it nice for myself but to instill in others or give an idea that might spark some interest in the neighborhood that could help others become interested in maybe making a little more effort in their yards that would not only help their own property value but that of the entire neighborhood as well.
So get out and get to work and tune up your own garden home and make yourself proud and others as well and give a neighbor a hand if necessary. So I will leave you today with our ongoing garden affirmation in mind: "URBAN FARMING: ONE EGG AT A TIME!"
