Leonard res­i­dence is Chero­kee Rose Gar­den Club’s Yard of the Month

Cherokee County Herald - - VIEWPOINTS - By Diane Trais­ter

An­other beau­ti­ful yard has been found to be given the Yard of the Month award. Linda & Jack Leonard re­side at 4465 C R 71 in Cen­tre. Walk­ing around this beau­ti­ful yard was a plea­sure. Our eyes first spot­ted a pretty yel­low flower we never saw be­fore. You have prob­a­bly heard of 4 O’clocks, but what about 8 O’clocks? Big­ger than the fours and very bright yel­low. Linda had a va­ri­ety of clema­tis that was un­usual too.

Also ob­served was a pretty dark red col­ored tree that Linda called a Smoke Tree. It had fussy look­ing blooms. There were two huge vegetable gar­dens. Be­side one of them were ev­ery kind of lily that one could imag­ine. It was dif­fi­cult to say which one was the pret­ti­est! On the other side of the house was a very spa­cious patch of dif­fer­ent col­ored lan­tana. A per­fect bloom to at­tract but­ter­flies.

There was a clus­ter of dif­fer­ent types of ar­range­ments by the drive­way. Planted in those spaces were In­pa­tients, Dusty Miller and a neat lit­tle square pot of Suc­cu­lents. There was a beau­ti­ful large pot with a red man­dev­illa to top it all off.

Please try to go by & see this yard if you get a chance. Dis­ap­pointed? Not a chance!!
