Most of the gardeners I know are 99% women; the men like
to take people around their wife's garden but they are
not really involved in the garden.
I think for women it gets them into their own little world.
When you're gardening you're totally in your own little world,
nobody matters, no problems matter, doing something you love
Gardening is so popular in our neighbourhood.
One of the beautiful gardens is my friend Lynn and Marina
on the side
and it's created a wonderful friendship between the three
of us. And we trade plants and ideas and we really bounce
off of each other for really creative things in our garden
In friendship's fragrant garden,
There are flowers of every hue.
Each with its own fair beauty
And its gift of joy for you.

My father taught me how to love plants from a very early
age and that's a special gift that I hope I can pass on to

My first memory of gardens was very early... coming down
the hill...there was this row of hollyhocks against the white

this day because of it.
I have become my Baba, my grandmother was a great gardener
totally addicted to gardening. Because I have a small yard
I have to be careful of what's there but most of my plants
are perennials or self-seeding.
Special time is first thing in the morning to go out in
the garden to see things you take that first cup of coffee
and wander around in your housecoat and look at what's come
True friendship is like a rose:
We don't realize its beauty until it fades.
I have heard the expression that your garden
is always the reflection of your friends because there is
bits and pieces
of them. Lee I find her yard interesting. Her's is 10 times
bigger than mine she has these little rooms and pockets.
Nettie Melnyk has a marvellous garden and yard with an
explosion of colour you wouldn't believe. Fran is my hero
because she gardens in such a carefree manner you just
go in there and enjoy it and she doesn't worry about the
rules she gardens.
Where flowers bloom so does hope.
