Winnipeg In Bloom

CHRISTINE TRETIAK KYDON:
GARDENER, RIVER HEIGHTS
I remember my mother's garden in New Jersey; she grew a lily called black beauty. I was always fascinated that out of this sprout that looked like asparagus, this spectacular flower evolved.

I'm a gardener because I have always liked colour, form, shape and I thought this was one way of expressing those feelings and images. My passion for all the flowers I have grown has narrowed down to lilies. They are spectacular, exotic, some of them very fragrant. I enjoy showing people the garden. It's satisfying to have people stop to admire it.

The Earth Laughs in Flowers
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

LORA SCHROEDER:
GARDENER WOLSELEY
This is the home my great grand mother lived in and also my aunt and uncle - so I have memories of coming here. One of the things I love about gardening is digging in the dirt. I love weeding and in fact my friends accuse me of weeding their gardens, and I do.

It was just this little corner the first year and then every year the garden grew. It's grown really organically and as we had more time the garden eventually has become one garden. If you come along the sidewalk it's very difficult to discern whose garden it is, it's a shared garden.

It's a really front street kind of neighbourhood. Lots of people are out walking, they are out on bikes with their kids. We've become a landmark for the children of the area. They know, you ride up to the garden and sit and wait for their parents to catch up.

I have gotten to know so many people in this community because of the garden. I think the thing that my daughters Emma and Kate enjoy most about the garden is the flowers and being able to go in there and pick bouquets. The garden has grown to encompass the sidewalk or even the street. We've taken out all the grass in the boulevard and put in a prairie wild flower mix, which is filled with bachelor buttons, poppies and calendula and daisies.

TALL GRASS PRAIRIE
NAR: Long ago before human gardeners, nature was the prairie's gardener. And what nature sowed was the tall grass prairie. At one time 1-1/2 billion acres of grasses and wildflowers. One small 32-acre patch survives in the west part of Winnipeg. The Living Prairie Museum.

To see a world in a grain of sand
And a Heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour
-William Blake

NAR: One of the earliest expressions of the gardens established by the earliest settlers is at Captain Kennedy house on River Road.

SHANNON SENAVITCH:
INTERPRETER, CAPTAIN KENNEDY HOUSE
Captain Kennedy was an explorer - he worked for the Hudson Bay company he was a justice of the Peace as well as a Townsman in St Andrews.

These beautiful gardens were built in the 1920s and are indicative of a non-farming family in St Andrews at that time. It's just really calm and relaxing place to come and enjoy the scenery.

People come from all over the world to visit these gardens. When I walk through these gardens I just feel at peace they are gorgeous, they make me smile every morning when the sun is coming off the river it's just beautiful.

Beauty is truth, truth beauty;
That is all ye know on Earth,
And all ye need to know.
-John Keats
