Yard of the Month

Betty and Bill Carwile at 145 Griffith Lane in Tallassee were recognized for Chamber Yard of the Month for May. Their entire yard was breathtaking. Some of the plants and flowers that they feature beautifully in their beds are native azaleas, a variety of hydrangeas, Japanese maples, loropetalum, coleus, Knock Out roses, and a combination of other plants and flowers. Betty is a member of the Tallassee Garden Club. She and Bill have achieved a relaxing and inspiring yard that is worthy of this recognition. Submitted by Whitney Hester.
