Ironton in Bloom: August’s Yard of the Month

Tom and Sandy Castle, 1927 S. Ninth St., are shown standing among the blossoms that won them Ironton in Bloom’s Yard of the Month Award for August.

Both Castles said they enjoy getting their hands dirty and work side-by-side making their home a show place in their neighborhood. Long-range planning is apparent in their mix of perennials and annuals that results in a beautiful yard in every season.

The yard contest will continue through October. Residents may nominate their own or another resident’s yard by e-mailing 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 the 10th of each month to be considered.
