VOLUNTEER TOUR GUIDE ENGLISH
This is a very peaceful garden when you come through here.
The paths are soft, it's cool, it's shady. You get a sense
you are in an entirely different place. This is a place you
can come in the morning and nurture your soul and just sit
Coming to this garden is an inspiration. Lots of tourists
come here people from different parts of Canada, different
parts of the world, because they are under the impression
that we are a cold, cold climate and that nothing really
grows here. Here at the English Garden at this time of year
it's a riot of colour.

The gardens are a perfect spot to come and experience of
what we have learned over time: yellows and blues. One of
the favourite areas of the garden is the red garden and our
use of red and black this year. We have a black peony poppy
which is absolutely stunning and the colour is so intense.
People are amazed by that.

There's no better place in Winnipeg to see a garden, there
is nothing on this scale. If you want to see this garden
at a specific time come in the evening. The sun is low, it's
quiet and that is when the smells really come out.
I see young couple sitting on the benches looking at each
other rather than the flowers but you can really tell they
are enjoying the atmosphere the ambience the quiet. They
are just drinking in the garden.

Come and smell the fragrances and see the change, the flowers,
the shading during the day. There is so much beauty that
you can observe.
Another thing people are fond of is remembrances of the
garden. So peonies may remind them of their grandmother and
days they visited the garden together. So we are striving
to help them recreate those memories and gardens are memory.
Everyday you see people leaving the garden with a smile on
their face and then we feel we have done our job.
A garden is a delight to the eye and a solace
for the soul.
