Yard of the Month
The Canby Garden Club named Maria and Jose Zamoras house on Lupine Street as Augusts Yard of the Month.
The front yard is lush and green with shrubs and flowers of every color and shape, with many annuals, lilies and roses.
Maria said they love having a colorful front yard. The different kinds of plants assure that the yard is filled with color all season long.
Gardening is Maria and Joses main hobby. For Jose, its his job too, as he works as a landscaper in Canby. Pruning and tending the garden brings them both joy, the couple said.
The yard looks different every year and Maria and Jose said that it took a full year to make it look the way it does.
She said she loves color as there are many annuals, lilies and roses all season long. Color comes from many different plants. Containers filled with flowers are everywhere.
They also have several shrubs trimmed into interesting shapes and the lawn is green and full.
The Zamoras had their yard nominated by a neighbors friend. They were really happy when they learned they had won, because they had worked so hard on it and it was good to be recognized.
The Zamoras have lived in Canby for about 18 years and say that they love it here. Their lives here have been happy and they said they have very nice neighbors.
