Ironton in Bloom honors Tripletts

The June Ironton In Bloom yard winners are Merril and Georgia Triplett of 1316 Shawnee Trail. Being in their 80s has not slowed the couple from continuing to do what they both love best: Gardening.

With some assistance from children, grandchildren and friends, they have surrounded their home with an eye-pleasing and extensive mix of both vegetables and ornamentals.

They share plants freely with neighbors and friends. As a result, not only their yard, but their whole neighborhood is blooming.

Ironton In Bloom is now accepting nominations for July Yard of the Month.

Residents may nominate their own or another resident’s yard by emailing the entry to irontoninbloom@zoominternet.net or by sending the address to Ironton In Bloom Inc., P.O. Box 4599, Ironton.

Mailed entries must be postmarked by July 10 to be considered.
