Front Yards in Bloom Edmonton 2010

Edmonton is a beautiful city and each year the front yards of residents are highlighted in a friendly competition called Front Yards in Bloom.

Neighbours, letter carriers and community leagues nominate their favourite yards, this year over 1500 gardens were nominated. 

Evaluations are conducted by scores of volunteers.

Enjoy these gorgeous Edmonton gardens, some of the finalists in the 2010 Front Yards in Bloom.

I had the good fortune to tour these beautiful properties. It was difficult to rate the entries because each yard was exceptional.

Congratulations to all finalists, and to all gardeners who take the time to grace our communities with such beauty. Thank-you ! And thanks, too, to the nominators, and all the other volunteers.

The Awards Ceremony for Front Yards in Bloom was held at City Hall on August 12. Dozens of gardeners were honored by several speakers and the best six Front Yards were highlighted (pictured above and below).
