Garden of Beauty winner Robin Schamber

Robin and Greg Schamber on South Bench Road near Pinedale take great pride in beautifying their spacious landscape so the Sage and Snow Garden Club awarded them its third Garden of Beauty Award for 2022. Their yard  is surrounded by beautiful flowers, trees and shrubs, including cotoneaster, lilacs, chokecherries, willows, gooseberries, raspberries, spruce trees and aspen trees. Penstemons, sunflowers, columbine, peonies, raspberries, rhubarb, and strawberries fill in the gaps. Hanging baskets and pots of flowers line their front porch. Their large hoophouse is brimful with celery, broccoli, carrots, squash, peppers, tomatoes, corn, potatoes, onions and salad greens. The Schambers have installed a drip irrigation and sprinkler system on timers to efficiently water all their trees, shrubs, flowers (including the hanging baskets!) and hoophouse plants, a feat alone that deserves recognition. Robin served as the coordinator for the Sublette County Extension Office for many years. She was respected and admired for guiding many 4-H kids to success at the county and state fairs. Now, in her retirement, Robin spends time at home practicing the skills she shared with others for many years.
