Yard of the Month_June 2022

June 2022 Yard of the Month

The beautiful yard receiving this award is owned by Ann Campbell. Mrs. Campbell has created lovely spaces in her yard where you can find pretty gazing balls, a small cat statue, an old tricycle, and statuary tucked among the landscape. A bench placed in the shade gives the perfect opportunity to watch the birds at the birdhouse. On her front porch, beautiful ferns sway gently above the railing. Lush shrubs and grasses of different shades of green dot the landscape. In the spring, her colorful peonies and roses are in full bloom. She is so kind to share her gorgeous flowers with us at the Town Hall! Thank you, Ann, for your hard work to keep your property looking wonderful in our community!

Congratulations to Doug and Carol Stewart-High – Yard of the Month for September 2021

Congratulations to Doug and Carol Stewart-High for their property being selected as Franklinville’s Yard of the Month for September! This amazing space has a spa like ambiance and is often called “the tree house.” Beautiful geraniums greet the eye as one walks up to the lovely front porch. An eclectic group of shade and sun plants adds a burst of color throughout the yard. Around back, a stucco walled garden contains a variety of vegetables and herbs and has a Mediterranean flair! Espaliers hang on the walls with lush, green vines. In a front flower bed, a curious little turtle suns on a rock among an abundance of succulents trying to figure out what the new sign says! Thank you to Doug and Carol for the beautiful place they have created in our small town! Visit our facebook page to see all the photos of this beautiful yard.
