Yard of The Month

For a number of years now our community has awarded a Yard of The Month to residents who have an outstanding yard throughout the year and whose yard is outstanding in that month. We were so honored when the committee came knocking at our door with sign in hand saying "Congratulations Your Yard is our Yard of The Month for December. Of course we are very honored to receive this award. My husband Leonard is the guy that makes it happen.
Leonard is semi retired and spends most of his spare time working in the yard and garden with me. I am usually the idea person for a big project and he then becomes the project manager and I am just the helper.The latest project has been the Christmas lights and decorating the yard for Christmas and one of the reasons we received Yard of the Month.
Lights All the Way Around the Cottage
The Garden Gate Area
The Nativity
The Garden Gate
I hope you enjoyed our Christmas Tour of Lights. We are going inside now and have some hot coco it's cold out here. Have a wonderful evening and come back to see us soon.
Peace and Joy
Miz Helen
