Garden Club presents awards

Members of the Mehlville Garden Club recently presented a State Beautification Citation and Yard of the Month Award to Carol Murray, whose home is in the 4900 block of Kerth Road in Concord. She has a wide variety of plants decorating her yard. Each tree in the backyard has a circle of flowers and yard decorations around it. She has many theme-area plantings, including a three-piece band, a crocodile with a fish and a boy fishing in a beach setting. Murray has more than 100 tropical plants that she takes outside every spring and brings in every fall. Many Garden Club members attended the awards presentation. In the front, Garden Club member Carole Lyston presents the honors to Murray, who is holding the leash to her very friendly puppy.
