Maben Yard of the Month

DOTTIE DEWBERRY
The yard of Jackie Christopher was selected by the Maben Home and Garden Club Committee for the October Yard of the Month. The yard and shrubs were well maintained as well as beautifully decorated with lavender mums. Jackie also had colorful flags, a fall leaf tree, a scarecrow and pumpkin display, and planters of ornamental cabbage. She laments the damage done by the tornado that wiped out most of her trees. All in all it is a beautiful yard that features fall displays for viewing by passersby. Congratulations, Jackie.
