The office at my mother's apartment complex is running a patio garden contest, and today is the judging. We think Mom has the best, but even if she doesn't win one of the 4 prizes, we know that she has a beautiful place to sit and enjoy her outdoors. Mom can't plant anything in the ground as she isn't allowed, so we helped her decorate with pots, statuary, plastic fence,and wood chips. We're pleased with how it turned out!

Addition : Not only did Mom not win, she didn't even place. A woman with a plastic flower garden took second, and a balcony took 1st. She feels so bad with all the time, effort and money we put into it, but it wasn't just for the contest, we wanted her to have a pretty garden to sit at and enjoy. We still feel hers was the prettiest, and without the use of plastic plants. but better luck next year, we just have to be a little more tacky!
