the Front Garden after 1 year

One year ago we were house hunting and Edmonton and found our new home.  Since then, I (and a few helpers) have done a whole lot of back-breaking work, digging up grass, removing rock mulch, cutting down the spruce, digging up roots, and planting. Here’s the result after one year.0817aug-002

In reflecting back on these garden changes I suddenly realized that everything in the front garden (top) has been planted by me in the last 10 months; all that was here when we moved in was a spruce tree and some annuals in pots (bottom)!  I’m quite happy with how things have filled in so far although the garden *not surprisingly* is a bit (okay, a lot) weedy after us being away on holidays for 2 weeks.  I’ve ordered some compost and mulch to top dress the front garden and then I’ll show you some close ups!
