I got a postcard in the mail today notifying us that our garden was selected to receive a 2007 Minneapolis Blooms Award! It looks like a neighbor or someone nominated us (Who is it? Fess up!) and then a garden evaluator stopped by sometime this summer to review our garden. Once I confirm our information for the Friends of the Committee on Urban Environment we should receive our award at the end of November.
Of course, proper credit should go to the previous owners as well as us, since it was they who planted much of the base plants to which we have added. But I’m sure that would be too many names to fit on a single award, so I just credit the POs here and let the award go to just Ms. Bungalow and me. You know, for … simplicity.
