A rainy day did not deter the Camden Parks and Trees Commission from awarding Grace Episcopal Church the fifth annual Margot Rochester Landscape Award Friday in honor of its memorial garden. The rain only moved the celebration -- both of the garden and of the award itself -- indoors into Grace’s Richardson Hall. The judges in the competition came from various gardening societies including Paige Woods and M.J. Rowell of the Kershaw County Master Gardeners; Cathy Cook of the Camden Garden Club; Virginia Furman, Florentine Garden Club; and Julie Trott, King Haigler Garden Club.
