The rain garden has just gotten better and better. It’s really a nice place to hang out in the yard. The flowers are a little messy, but it’s a great place to sit with the dogs. It is really the only place in the backyard with shade, which helps, too.
And, we got a lovely surprise when we learned we were chosen for an award from our city for this very rain garden. (I’m currently patting myself on the back.)
(You may remember, this garden was built through a city program for rain gardens.)
As a person who thrives on gold stars and certificates, it felt really good to receive this letter. We will get our official certificate at a city council meeting. I think that’s kinda cool!
And, the letter happened to come only two short weeks after we learned we were nominated by our neighbors and received an award from the city for a home beautification award. (Our city has an annual “Tell on Your Neighbor” award.)
How cool is that?
