Summer is here and so are the garden awards. This year the city of Port Coquitlam and the PoCo Garden club are hosting the 16th annual Pride of Poco Garden Awards. If you have a front yard oasis, or a backyard getaway they want to see it. If you dabble in the pageantry of patio gardens or have a really skookum before/after, they want to hear from you too! The deadline has been extended to July 13th, so there’s still lots of time to nominate the garden you love. Applications are available at Hyde Creek, the Rec Centre, Leigh Square Community Arts Village & city hall. Have fun & good luck!
On a personal note I’d like to express a heartfelt thank you to the kind soul who nominated my garden. I appreciate your appreciation. I’ll try to do you proud. While I kick-it into power weeding mode please take a moment to soak in summer at it’s best, here in the garden!
