I wanted to share some photos I took of lovely gardens while volunteering with Front Yards in Bloom. If you’re in the Edmonton area, they can use more help placing signs in nominated yards. Contact me if you’re interested and can assist in the immediate future.
Front Yards in Bloom is a terrific program. Thanks for sharing @shirleym. For those of you unfamiliar with the program, it began in 1999 as an initiative by Edmonton Horticultural Society, City of Edmonton, and Canada Post to recognize the efforts of Edmontonians to make neighbourhoods beautiful. Nominations are made by postal workers, neighbours, friends and passersby who note a garden that stands out, shows improvement, and dedication to beautification of their yard. None are too little nor too big. The goal is to encourage “Edmontonians to help keep their neighbourhoods attractive places to live.” https://www.edmonton.ca/programs_services/landscaping_gardening/front-yards-in-bloom-about.aspx
