The winners of Mayor Menino’s 2010 Garden Contest have been announced! Unsurprisingly, a Fenway Victory Gardens spot won top prize in the community gardens category, and Trinity Church was recognized as a superior “Storefront, Business, or Organization Garden.” But have you ever been to the third-place garden at “Presentation Nursing and Rehabilitation Home, 10 Bellamy Street, Brighton“? Or visited the Granada Park community garden hosted by the Chilcott-Granada Association, Jamaica Plain (third place, community garden)?

Seeking out these gardens–which must have involved hours or irrigation this droughty summer–is a way to acknowledge all the plant artists out there making Boston beautiful. Go take a look.
