There's Bermuda Grass invading the flower beds. The Pine Straw is faded and sparce. Nothing is blooming or lush except the Knock Out Roses and the Mandilla. But we came home the other day to find the Property of the Month sign stabbed into the front yard. The city has a beautification committee that secretly chooses one home from each voting district each month. I don't think we win because we are that wonderful - I think we win because the city wants to send our neighbor a message about the state they keep their yard in...it's not working.
