The winner of the 2021 Millie Hisey Landscape Beautification Award is Christine Skeels whose home is at 4000 Quail Ave N in Robbinsdale. She was presented with the award by Millie Hisey at the Diggers meeting on September 21st. This is what the judges had to say as to why she was picked as the winner:
" We picked Christine for the award because we were very impressed with the work that went into her yard, the boulevards in particular, and the great variety of plants she has. The boulevard is very visible to anyone who goes by and adds color and beauty to that part of the street. We love how she made a Facebook page called The Free Little Arboretum and how she updates the page with photos of what plants are currently blooming. And she has gone the extra step and has a spreadsheet linked to that Facebook page that shows all the common plant names, their botanical names, their location in her yard, the year the plants were purchased and from what seller and she also notes if the plant later died and what year. All very useful and appreciated information."
Our congratulations to Christine!
