Beautiful Gardens of 2023

Pearl Lorentzen

Lakeside Leader

Barbara and Leslie Sargunaraj’s garden in northeast Slave Lake has established trees, perennial beds, and pops of colour from annuals. Barbara does most of the gardening. She enjoys both growing things and the excuse to be outdoors. The corner lot has full sun on two sides and shaded areas on the other and in the back, allowing for a large variety of plants.

With the leaves starting to turn, this will likely be the last Beautiful Garden this year, but if you know of an autumnal garden, let The Leader know at 780-849-4380.
