Ladybug Beautification Awards - August

The Ladybug Garden Club Beautification Committee selected three winners for Community Beautification in August. The Rest Haven Nursing Home was selected for the beauty of their 88 hanging baskets, outstanding court yard planting and the entrance to the facility. Various annuals highlight the front garden while petunias, germaniums, streptocarpella, and numerous other baskets are hung at the windows of the residents for them to enjoy either outside or inside. Promoting the beauty is Jessie England, Director of Nursing, John Hollinger, Maintenance and caring for the flowers and baskets; Angela Beumer and Lisa Marcum of the Ladybug Garden Club and Kim
Gump, resident.

Bill and Angie Baker's country garden on Arcanum-Bears Mill Road was selected for their 30 years of gardening. Bill loves to receive plants and memorabilia from family and friends. He admits he may not know the correct name of the plant but he can tell you the donor of each plant. The Baker's garden consists of perennials, annuals, cattails in the water garden, sedum from family members and a large pumpkin patch. Bill and his father each have a John Deere garden area with flowers of yellow and green. The highlight of their garden is an outdoor theater Bill constructed - it can be seen from their deck, bar and fire pit area as well as in the back yard.

Carrie Emerick's gardens on Jaysville-St. John Road is a lovely country garden with lots of blooming annuals, perennials and container gardening. She features country containers from flea markets finds, wagon wheels, and old milk cans to add interest. Carrie's had her garden for 16  years where she and her family enjoy feeding and watching the birds and their large vegetable garden.
