Yard of the week times two!

We have two Yards of the Week to share today:

This garden has it all, raised bed for vegetables, trees for shade, bee nests and flowers for the pollinators. The yard at 267 Spring Street, Almonte, is gardened by Ron and Katrina Ayling. The growing season starts with a lovely show of spring bulbs including tulips and daffodils. As you walk by, be sure to stop and enjoy.

The stunning combination of daylilies and rudbeckia combined with loosestrife and other wild flowers at the gate leading to the home of Ron and Mary MacMeekin at 233 Bennie’s Corners Road is a traffic stopper! The extensive lawns surrounding the curving driveway are populated with a wide selection of trees. Stone retaining walls around the house protect the raised beds full of colourful annuals amidst hostas, echinacea, daylilies and other perennials.  A natural pond collects rainwater to keep the garden looking good all year.
