Smiths of Woolrich win garden award
The Garden of the Month Award for June, given by Dogwood Circle Garden Club, was presented to Denny and Cherie Smith, 1165 Park Ave., Woolrich., Cherie has installed front, side and rear garden beds in the last 20 years. She calls her hobby a joy and doesn’t consider it to be work. The beds are meticulously maintained and full of color and a wide variety of annuals and perennials. A large purple rhododendron catches the viewer’s eye first, then the colorful impatiens, pinks, foxgloves and salvia. Foundation plantings grace the sides of the home, with several varieties of iris, sedum, columbine and primrose.
