The residence of Alvin Whitley, Elizabeth Whitley and her son Jeremy Greene was recently selected as the Colonial Garden Club’s October 'Yard of the Month.' The yard features a festive fall display that includes pumpkins, seasonal greenery and flowers, supported on the stump of a large oak tree. The scene includes yellow and burgundy mums, white calibrachoa, flowering red peppers and borders of liropie and hosta. The yard also has various other garden beds, plantings and accessories. Among the categories used to make the selection were creativity, design, color, plant choices and placement. The family plans to change the display for Christmas and winter.
