February garden of the month features colorful plants

The Poinsettia Circle of the Garden Club of St. Augustine chose Ed and Karen Quinnet’s beautifully landscaped yard for its February Garden of the Month.

The Quinnets’ home is in the Royal Pines subdivision at the World Golf Village.

Ed, the gardener, retired to Florida from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, where he was a builder and developer.

He has learned where the plants are most happy in his yard. He has added areas of color to the landscape and searches for unusual plants.

Sadly, gardening keeps him too busy for golf, Ed says.
