This month's Yard of the Month is actually Bruce Raff's backyard of the month! Please enjoy the pictures showing his hard work on his backyard retreat. Congratulations, Bruce!
Two plants one notices in the front yard are the pineapple lily and a beautiful rubrum in full bloom. The backyard has three water features in a private and shaded area.
Plantings inclued a passionflower vines on the fence, a peace rose, purple water lilies, Phillipine lily and hanging baskets of ferns. Also notable are the colorful hammocks for relaxing in the shady garden.
The prize for Yard of the Month is a gift certificate donated by Clegg's Nursery, a sponsor of IEJT for several years. Plan to get your yard in shape for next summer's contest and remember the Christmas lights display contest in December.
