Here is a snapshot from Alice Fleurkens garden, full of many surprises.
"The garden is in Sweaburg, Ontario and I get a lot of praise from a lot of people. We have a hill and I like working with rocks. Our garden is ever changing and really a never ending work of art that gives me a lot of Satisfaction. It is full of surprises. Also the birds, rabbits, chipmunks and neighbourhood like it. It is never perfect, there is always something to give away or move because it got too big. And sometimes I have to bring it to the city yard for composting. If people only knew the treasures to be found there for free. I used some of the extra plants for a garden in the park behind us. And my husband gets all the credit for cutting the lawn. I try weeding before he does that so they get picked up by the lawnmower."
