Jane Bircher of 50A Auburn Court had the Highland Yard of the Month for September.

This amazing small yard has so many pretty plants and flowers.

Bircher always loved all the pretty flowers her grandmother and mother always had and hoped she could someday have pretty flowers also. Now being retired, she has the time to do that.

She has three different varieties of elephant ears, sweet potato vines, a banana tree, succulents, miniature morning glories, mandevilla and calibrachoa of different colors and ferns and impatiens.

About the Yard of the Month

All residences, including houses, apartments, townhouses, villas and condominiums, within Helvetia and Saline townships are eligible. Yard of the Month winners may win the contest only one time per two-year period. Residents may nominate either a neighbor’s yard or their own yard for Yard of the Month.

One entry per household will suffice for the whole season. Nominations should be submitted by calling the Chamber of Commerce, 654-3721, with the name, address and phone number of the nominee.

Winners will receive a Yard of the Month sign from the city to display in their yard for one month, a certificate signed by the mayor of Highland, a $25 gift certificate from the Highland Chamber of Commerce and a membership in the Highland Garden Club for the season.
