I was walking along one of the Tempe streets for my morning stroll and saw this beautiful front yard and the sign in front of it - Winner of the Beautification Award. It looks well-deserved - it certainly caught my eye right away.
I am aware of this City of Tempe activity and have been attending this event for years in person. It is usually held in April.
From the city of Tempe website I learned that actually it is coming soon - the annual City of Tempe State of the Neighborhoods Event. This year it will be held virtually.
It recognizes residents, properties and businesses in our neighborhoods that make it special for all of us, living there.
