  1. I had a note on my front step this morning handwritten that said, “You have a beautiful yard! Garden Club Gem of the week… enjoy comp paper. I would like more information about what this means. It was left with a copy of the Boomerang. However I found nothing in the paper about the Garden Club recognizing any local Gardens.
    Thanks,

    • Hello, Teresa. This is a mystery to us. Nominations for the Laramie Boomerang’s Garden Gems program will start running in the paper next week, but judging won’t start until after June 3rd. (Please feel free to nominate your own garden when you see the form in the paper.) We checked with the paper, and they are not running any promotions yet, so we think you must just have a garden admirer. Thank you for working to keep Laramie beautiful! Amy F.
