The Garden of the Month for February 2012 is 78 Tern St. This is the home
of Mary and Robert Lupo. On the street side, the sidewalk bed has beautiful
purple Irises blooming. The home's large planters are overflowing with
purple and white pansies. If you look closer, you will find a meticulously
kept, colorful yard behind the fence. The pathway side the home is flanked
by two large planters, filled to the brim with color.
The Le Petit Jardin of the month is the home of Marie Guidry at 22 Stilt.
The front of the home has wall to wall brick planters which hold many
vivacious colors. At first sight, it already looks as if spring has
The Secret Garden of the month is 59 Gull, the home of Terry and Charlie
Thensted. The meandering cobble stone pathway will lead you to its private
beauty. Ferns are placed throughout the grassy landscape, bringing texture
and height. Palms are used to close in the pebbled patio. Color is used
throughout in the carefully placed planters along the back of the home.
What a lovely, quiet place.
