This front yard is our private little abode and our labour of love. When we purchased this new home, there was nothing but grass. So we decided to take on the task of building this garden. Year after year it kept growing and growing. Now it’s about five years old and is mostly filled with perennial plans that attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. The majority of the plants were started from seeds that we planted ourselves in the basement under grow lights. The neighbours are always delighted when they pass by and see all the beautiful plants and colors. We enjoyed all the work that we put into building it. We think we've done alright for a mom and her three kids. This is our YardShare. Hope you enjoy the view.
