The Avondale Garden Club awarded the July 2000 Yard-of-the-Month to Phil, great grandson of Margaret Mae Brown of the famed Brown Flower Shop in Dallas, Texas, "It took a lot of hard work, clean living, and a belief in the American Way," Phil said in an interview with the Avondale Times. "Even with the NASDAQ on the fritz, I was still able get out there and do the work that my great grandmother taught me."
