Edmonton is one of the largest northern urban centers in the world. Located in Canada, Edmonton is the capital city of Alberta. The city has a strong history as a trade center, and it served as the last major stop for the Klondikers during the Gold Rush. This is why we Edmontonions call our city "The Gateway to the North"

Please enjoy my perspective of one of of the fastest growing urban areas this side of China.

Communities In Bloom

On Sunday I was sitting in my house surfing City Daily Photo when a strange lady started taking pictures of my yard and then walked away leaving only a note in my mailbox and this little yellow sign.

Turns out I have been nominated for having one of the best yards in Edmonton.

I know it's a very 1950's housewife, state fair type of award but I am super excited! No one would know or suspect that this tattooed and pierced guy likes to get down and dirty ;-P

Oh wow, congratulations!

I have to agree with the nomination—I adore your yard! I don't like gardens that are too neat. I'm sure you know what I mean. I love the controlled wildness of yours.

Ooh, I hope you win. :)

Well done! I agree that the yard looks great. Here’s hoping that the tattooed pierced guy takes the grand prize and shocks the little old ladies.

Lovely blooms, and congratulations! Wishing you good luck with this unsolicited honor. Domestic or not, to have one's creative work acknowledged is always meaningful.
