Becky Paparousis, who lives in the Scarborough Junction neighborhood, says her backyard gives her “peace and joy.”
“I love sharing it with guests and family, maybe inspiring them to add or try something new. I have occasionally been known for getting my trowel out and digging up a piece that they can take home,” she said in an email to Scarborough Mirror.
“I have mainly planted perennials over the 10 years focusing on the different leaves and colors. I always say that the flowers are a bonus and the pollinators also appreciate them a lot.”
As a newer member of the Scarborough Garden Horticultural Society, she said: “I have learned a lot from the wisdom of many great gardeners and common interests.”
