The Little Garden That Could – PHS City Garden Contest Winner!

I nearly dropped my ipod. I gasped as I read the letter.  Had the new kid on the block done the impossible? Yes, Yes, Yes!!!  A rookie gardener snags a prestigious gardening win!

2010 PHS Winner Letter

Wasn’t really expecting this and have not prepared a formal acceptance speech.  This garden is a labor of love and I’m ecstatic to have achieved this recognition in my first year of ‘real’ gardening.

I want to take this opportunity thank the judges who gave this garden a chance; the lovely staff at Feeney’s for their patience and advice; the family for pitching in; and thank you mother nature for working with me in turning a neglected yard into a delightful space.

Thank You!!

All I can say is Happy Gardening and onward to next year!
