Last Call: Paint and Garden Contest Nominations

Deadline: Monday, June 28

WAHA is looking for the best exterior paint finishes and gardens in West Adams, to be voted upon at the 4th of July event. Any house painted between June 1, 2009 to May 31, 2010 is eligible. Any garden in West Adams is eligible (newly planted or not). In both cases, the property must be within the Historic West Adams District.

The nomination process is simple (but digital) –– you can nominate your neighbors' beautiful and creative handiwork, or your own. Please send digital photographs along with the specific address, homeowner name(s), and description of the restoration and/or garden planning work that was required to transform an ugly duckling into today's beautiful swan. E-mail your submission to, by June 28. Attendees at the 4th of July event will vote for their faves (be sure to bring your posse if you are a nominee!)
