Yard of the month for November is awarded to Carl and Karen Titka of 2504 Coxindale. This is the first time the Titkas have placed in the finals, not to mention coming in first. The bright new paint in a cheery Fall yellow is anchored by a colorful leaf wreath on the door. The tidy appearance of the lawn and landscape make this yard a delight to see.
Finishing second by unanimous vote are Sandra and Richard Yarnall of 8613
Averell Court. This is their fourth time finishing in the finals, having achieved first place in August 2011.
In third are Ed and Jeanne Burtoft at 2704 Coxindale. This is the second time the Burtofts have joined the top three. The lawn is a lush green carpet bordered by nicely pruned shrubs.
Congratulations to each of the homeowners and thanks to Jamie Visocan and Larry Deckard who assisted me on the judging panel.
For December, Yard of the Month will be awarded to the home with the best decorations. So bring it on–lights, wreaths, swags, greenery, … you get the idea. Several homes have started already. But we won’t judge until Sunday, December 22, 2013, so you’ve got until then. Happy Holiday decorating!
