This is my second year being nominated for this award. It’s quite a thrill! Last year I was due to give birth to my youngest babe the same week as the judging, which was also during a heat wave! So honestly I did very little work in the garden. The Judges got to come enjoy my wild messy front yard. This year however I have the benefit of time, and my own sweat labour. I’m going to give it my all. We will see what happens.
There are so many beautiful gardens in Port Coquitlam. I have no delusions of wining. But I do so look forward to the contest. Things like this help push the garden forward. Taking a critical eye at my handy work, I will be making lists this weekend. Things that need to change. What I like, what I don’t like. What stays, what goes. I have a few projects in mind already.
At the end of the day, my garden will be better for it. I will have pushed my own boundary’s, and the big winner will be a moot point. So I’d like to thank who ever it was that nominated my garden this year! It was a wonderful sight to come home to that little sign. Coincidentally on my birthday 🙂 You rock!
