Yard of the Month – August 2016

August 1, 2016 - August 31, 2016

2218 Kensington Dr.

Congratulations to Jim and Dean Thompson at 2218 Kensington Drive for winning the August 2016 Plaza Midwood Yard of the Month.  They were honored and surprised to hear that (more than) one of their neighbors nominated them for yard-of-the-month!  Dean describes her love for our neighborhood due to its charming architecture, majestic tree canopy, diverse landscapes and – especially – the fact that it is a neighborhood in which people sit on their front porches, take evening strolls, and interact with each other.  While you’d never guess it from their front yard, Jim and Dean claim not to know much about gardening and attribute their yard’s inspiration from the Plaza Midwood community garden and the gorgeous grounds of the Van Landingham Estate.   Dean’s favorite part of working in the yard is all of the passers-by who stop to chat while out for a walk.

Next time you pass by 2218 Kensington, stop to congratulate Jim and Dean on their winning and thank them for being a part of what makes Plaza Midwood so great!
