The first yard to be chosen this summer is Ron and Robin Thompson's at 312 W. Ames St. You don't always need flowers to make a yard look nice. The clean-cut look of finely trimmed bushes and a lawn that is well manicured can make a yard stand out. This is why the Wayside Garden Club in Russell has chosen this yard as it's June Yard of the Month.
If you are in Russell looking at the Thompson home, you might enjoy driving by the Lowell Sims home on Ames St.. He has been planting beautiful roses across the front of his house for a couple of years now and the result is beautiful. The roses again weathered the very cold winter and abundant blooms are all over the rose bushes.
