Winnipeg In Bloom

Every day is summer. Just like on the finest summer morning with dew dripping from Christine's fragrant lilies and roses. So we see and hear in "Winnipeg in Bloom" a new one hour documentary on Winnipeg gardens and gardeners which premiered on Prairie Public TV on Saturday December 4, 2004.

Produced and written by Winnipeg producer George Siamandas it is one of the first locally produced films shot in high definition television format. In this 6th project for the Fargo North Dakota Public Television Station Siamandas reveals the passions of the people who lovingly create art and beauty. Gardens with water, gardens with stones. Gardens with flowers, gardens with hope.

With little more than 100 frost free days, and clay-ladden prairie soils, the passionate gardeners of Winnipeg manage to grow outstanding gardens. Each new year, they emerge like artists ready to recreate a fresh canvas of delight and exultation. They paint with form and colour. Turning rubble piles into sanctuaries.

This is the story of these gardens of love and hope. Nurtured like beloved children to produce what nature had never intended. Joyful, colourful, abundant, natural landscapes that succeed in creating a little Eden in each yard.

In Winnipeg in Bloom we visit more than two dozen Winnipeg gardens. And learn how their owners brought them to life and beauty. What do these gardens mean to their tenders? How did they develop their passion for what has become North America's most popular hobby and pastime?

From a little pocket garden, to elaborate acreage. From quaint cottage gardens to more formalized landscapes. From those that look like they have come from the pen of a professional to those tended by loving life-long hobby gardeners. All are equal. All speak to a place in man's soul. The need to find beauty and harmony. Peace and splendour.

But it's not just about beauty, and colour. Gardens are a magical healing place for people recovering from life's stresses and health challenges. They are nurturing places for the soul.
