Amy Haydel’s home on West Fifth Street in LaPlace is the latest residence to be awarded the Rue des Jardins civic association’s “Garden of the Month.” The hand-painted cast-iron sign will stand in her yard until the next awardee is chosen. The sign features bright orange fall flowers painted by Lauren DesRoches, granddaughter of one of the founders of the civic association, Jane Montz DesRoches. (Staff photo by David Vitrano)
