Congratulations to Dennis and Linda Petsch of Stockbridge, our December garden winner of the month. This couple spends many enjoyable hours outdoors working and creating gardens. Their rock garden features a little pond with a fountain and an old water pump filling a barrow. Antique farm implements accent the garden along with ornamental grasses and maroon coral-bells, giving it a historical feel. They love to sit on the adjacent patio and relax to the sound of tinkling water.
This Garden Contest runs from May 2020 through March 2021. A garden will be chosen and shared each month. In March 2021, readers will vote for their favorite garden. Next year’s winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to Tulip Tree Gardens funded by Dorothy Craft’s Sewing and Alterations and Tulip Tree Gardens. To enter a garden, send up to five photos by the 15th of each month. Email photos to StockbridgeCommunityNews@gmail.com and use “Gardens” as the subject. Include your name, physical address of the garden and a phone number.
