Winnipeg In Bloom

LINDA STILKOWSKI:
GARDENER, ST JAMES
For the last four years I have been writing the gardening column for the Free Press. Having a nice yard and a nice garden really has enhanced my lifestyle. I spent a lot of time out there. It's good exercise, it's very restful for me.

There's so many fragrances...there's things you just want to reach out and touch. I enjoy my surroundings. I don't have any desire for a cottage and I really don't have a desire to travel any more. I love to get out there as soon as the sun comes up...and it's all a sense of peaceful calm.

Gardening is an exercise in optimism.
Sometimes, it is a triumph of hope over experience.
- Marina Schinz

I think that gardening opens up our own personal barriers because it gives us something in common with a stranger. It's actually brought me together with a lot of my neighbours, they have a reason to stop and talk to me.

I think the whole community gardening thing took off particularly on Ethelbert is because that is a little neighbourhood to itself. Really what they've done is made themselves be felt as very special. And rightly so, it's a special area of Winnipeg.

There is more pleasure in
making a garden
Than in contemplating a paradise.
- Anne Scott-James

CARRIE YUDAI:
GARDENER, WOLSELEY
At the front there was nothing, just grass and I decided to plant on the boulevard that's how it came to be. Everybody started digging the boulevard and planting perennials. Now as you can see the boulevard is looking really nice. Ethelbert is the best street in the city. Also gardening has brought us together, the whole neighbourhood.

The clavia, I have a clavia, and oh I love that plant. The blooms are orange, bright orange. They are just spectacular. You plant whatever you like and if it survives it survives. Winnipeg gardeners should be patient and not afraid to keep on trying... even plants that are too tender for here.

When I go to work in the morning I will look at them. My husband thinks I am crazy because I talk to them too. See you later. I don't say see you later to my husband but to my plants. It makes me feel really good and relaxed.

To cultivate a garden is to
walk with God.
- Christain Nestell Bovee

ALAN DOERKSEN:
GARDENER, FORT GARRY
My garden is woodland garden; it tries to mimic what you would find in a boreal forest -various elevations a sunken area rather than one flat plain. And over time I have evolved, created this little paradise retreat for myself my family my friends.

Gardening is critical to my well being. In fact during my time in the church as a minister, it was a place of rejuvenation of my soul. It is a place of tranquillity and peace. Walking in the garden gives me excitement, joy, enthusiasm for life, connects me, grounds me. To walk in the garden is just a spiritual experience.

I think gardening is relational it's connecting us to the earth. A garden is a place where the human soul and the earth connect. I discovered my artist's soul in the garden. It's a place where human creativity finds expression in the earth - that's a garden.

The plant right now that is in bloom is called meadow sweet... it has this beautiful pink puffy kind of bloom and it's just so delicate and yet so vibrant in colour. I tell people plants are like people. The most important growth is the growth you don't see, the roots.

A garden is a love song, a duet
Between a human being and Mother Nature.
- Jeff Cox
