Corsicana — Dawson Garden Club

Dawson Garden Club has selected the home of Maria E. Garcia at 403 N. Gilmer in Dawson as Yard of the Month for May. Whatever the weather brings on, the Garcia family always manages to keep their flower beds flourishing all around the house. The roses this year are just spectacular. And as always, there are all kinds of arrangements throughout the yard, and many special decorations to add to the effect. Great job, Garcia family! You have done it again.
