Favourite Feature is the Vegetable Garden - Strathcona County Garden Tour

Now back in Sherwood Park, we had two destinations left to visit, both of them urban lots. This particular garden featured some art by one of the owner's friends (see the yellow dancers and canvas on the fence). What I enjoyed the most, besides the wonderful shade trees and a hammock that looked incredibly inviting...oh and a hot tub (this garden's water feature?), was the garden of raised vegetable beds.  Through a rose covered arbor, one enters upon the vegetable garden, walking paths between the beds are lined with landscape fabric to reduce the need for weeding and keeping feet mud free.

This gardener also composts.


So inviting after touring so many gardens in a day...



 Anyone want to join the yellow dancing ladies with parasols?

There's one more garden to go.....

It's always nice to see how creative other gardeners are. The water gardens in the previous post were to die for. Glad you had so much fun garden hopping on the tour.
