Brett Birdsong’s house at 410 Gulf Street in Lamar has been selected as this season’s “Beautiful Garden” by the Master Gardeners of Barton County. Brett has lived in his house for about three years and some of the items he has added to his yard include sunflowers, four o-clocks, lily of the valley, several types of mint, knock-out roses, a blackberry bush and a peach tree. He also has a small vegetable garden where he grows tomatoes, onions, peppers and corn. He says that gardening does not have to be expensive. He has foraged numerous plants, purchased several items on clearance and grown many plants from the seeds he has saved from the previous year’s plants. He is a photographer by trade, and you can definitely see his artistic ability in his beautiful landscaping.
