Norma and Mel Minion have been selected as the grand prize winners of the Noblesville Preservation Alliance’s Annual Denzel Hufford Garden Contest. They received an outdoor garden marker and $200 for their amazing landscaped garden at 219 Cheshire Circle, Noblesville.

“The Minion’s winning garden was described as ‘perfectly maintained and healthy’ by the judges,” NPA member Susan Mayes stated. “Norma’s special interest is perennials. She tries to have at least one specimen of as many as she has room for. She also loves hostas and has more than 70 varieties. Almost everything is marked.”

First Runner Up was Sharon Overholt of 12042 Babbling Brook Rd. She received a $50 gift certificate to Garden Thyme at the Old Schoolhouse. The awards were made possible by an anonymous NPA family with NPA matching funds.

“Overholt’s lush garden was also extremely healthy. Serene pathways, a goldfish pond and waterfall, and a Japanese lighthouse add a perfect touch,” Mayes stated.

Adele Dodd, daughter of the late Denzel Hufford, presented the awards to winners. Hufford was well known and appreciated for her gardening skills. Next year’s contest will have a mature division for gardens six years old or older and a novice division for gardens up to five years old. Grand Prize winners cannot reapply, but all others are welcome to enter again.
