Yard of the Week: Marion Armstrong

Mississippi Mills Yard of the Week is sponsored by the Almonte and District Horticultural Society.

The blaze of colour in the front yard at 334 Wylie Street is a testimony to the gardening skills of the owner Marion Armstrong. An underground drip hose in the main flower bed was quite an asset this year. Perennials that butterflies like such as echinacea, phlox and lilies are prominent in the front yard. A clematis and metal dragonflies on the front of the house add interest. Hanging baskets add colour to the trees framing the house and a metal sculpture is featured in the garden.
