Two Prairie City residents were awarded ornamental frogs from the Prairie City Green Thumb Garden Club for best yard design.

Randy Hennen received an award for his yard, which includes wildflowers with spotted areas of sage brush, bitter brush and clump grasses.

“This all comes together to create a visually pleasing yard as well as a wildlife habitat,” said club secretary Jan Plemmons.

The second winners, Ed and Maria Butler, have a walking path to their front door flanked with pink and lavender petunias.

“Walking up to the front door is a beautiful pathway and a wonderful journey of smell — very beautiful and a lovely balance of color,” Plemmons said.

Club member Susie Gonzales presented the winners with the yard ornaments, which are marked with the year and club name.
