Nominated!

I was looking out the front window the other evening and I noticed the head of our community garden club putting something in my mailbox which I didn’t think much of, but when I looked out again a few minutes later, she was still out front sitting in her truck writing and I realized what had likely just happened. My heart leapt! And then it sank. Because if I had just been nominated for the city’s Front Yards in Bloom contest I had also just been judged! And after all the rain we had had there were giant weeds. . .


Yellow weeds. . .


Ant hills. . .


And fun flamingos hiding in the bushes from all the nasty wind we had been having. . .


Sigh. . . Oh well, it is great to be nominated. The thing is though, you never really know if by some miracle you may have made it to the next round! So tomorrow will find me frantically pruning, weeding, staking and maybe even sewing (new cushions for the bench) Because, what if??! Stay tuned for a tour of the front garden once I’ve gotten it prettied up a bit. . . (And then I’m going to persaude Ev to let us tour her front garden. . .Because she was nominted as well! Whoo Hoo!)
