Julie Sparks’ yard is right on Lesser Slave Lake in Canyon Creek. She has a variety of trees, from blue spruce to oaks to Ohio buckeye. She also has yellow raspberries, shrubs, and a wide variety of flowers.

This garden will be part of the Garden Tour put on by the Lesser Slave Lake Regional Arts Council on August 6.
