Out of 225 town houses, my little garden came in second in the 2013 Newport Highlands Garden Contest.
I learned something about myself that's not very nice; I'm a sore loser. I think my garden should have come in first because it's loaded with colorful blooms and is still blooming. The first place winner has a monochromatic look of white petunias with a little purple for color and some dried out hostas.
I think it would be both tacky of me and probably illegal, to put up a picture of the #1 garden, and let you choose; but I'm not that evil.
Besides, I should enjoy the $75 gift certificate I was presented, keep my mouth shut, and be happy with second place. Argh! I don't do well with being second.
What's nice about a garden, no matter how big or how small, is that everyone can enjoy it. I almost got first place, but not quite.
