Yard of the Month, June 2015

Many thanks to last month's winners, Pete & Anne Peterson, who were our judges for the June IEJT Yard of the Month, and it was no easy task! 

And congratulations to the winner, Terry Passman on Oliphant.  


In the front, the sidewalks are bordered by day lilies and crape myrtles in gold and purple shades. A feature of the side yard is the bed for watermelons and eggplants.

Cajun hibiscus is a favorite of Terry's who visits the LSU plant sale to find new types.

A muscadine vine, fig and apple trees grow in the back yard along with tomatoes and a special Peggy Martin climbing rose. This plant is from one which survived Katrina in Plaquemines Parish.

Terry's yard is a bright spot along his street since he also has an impressive Christmas display during the holiday season.

The special IEJT sign is posted in the yard and Terry received a gift certificate donated by Clegg's.


Look around for a a good looking yard to nominate for July's contest!
