Deanna Davison’s garden at 343 Hope Street, Almonte is a delightful array of colour surrounded by a picket fence.

A taste of what’s to come is displayed outside the fence in fieldstone-encased beds holding day lilies, coreopsis, malva, hosta, white roses, hydrangea and arctic willow.

A large pine dominates the shade garden with a bench to enjoy the birds that come to a water source, bird feeders and a bird house.  Potted herbs, hanging baskets and whimsical statuary are interspersed among day lilies, heliopsis, roses, coneflower and firetail.  The house is framed on both sides with trellised purple jackmani clematis.  This garden is an asset to the neighbourhood.
