Winnipeg In Bloom

CAROL CARLSON:
GARDENER, ST VITAL
I've been involved in garden tours for 6 years. It was mainly to see in other people's yards to get ideas. There's no end to the fun in the garden tour... and everyone enjoys it. You will see gardens of all types on the garden tour from absolutely perfectly laid out expensive gardens to one garden it was the tiniest front yard you could come across.

Gardens are a great insight into people's personalities cause I think people keep their houses the same way they keep their houses. I'm talking about women now. I think the women I know who garden - the gardens are the same as their house - they are either neat and tidy or they are shabby overgrown and messy - and that's how they keep their house, exactly how they keep their garden.

I remember when my mother planted petunias and geraniums and those were the only two plants she ever planted and I said I would never plant them, but I do. I think that every good woman gardener needs a good man who says yes dear, who will do the hard work, the shovelling, the building. It's nice to have a yes dear in your life.

With a few flowers in my garden,
half a dozen pictures
And some books, I live without envy.
- Lope de Vega

ALICE KULUK:
GARDENER, HENDERSON HIGHWAY
My garden is probably a really casual fun garden with lots of art in it. As an artist I feel like my garden is an extension of my living space and I do like to put my art and my friend's art to enjoy it there.

We are talking a real variety of art. Some of it is really fun and some of it was from found objects that we've just turned into art that was really nothing till we put it into the garden. I think gardening is really important to me. I go out there and just lose track of time and myself in the garden.

Being located on the river has really been an asset because we don't have a cottage and so this home to us is like a cottage. I just feel very relaxed and comfortable when I walk around the garden. It's also really rewarding when friends come by and give you compliments about how great the garden looks.

I guess the advice I would give to upcoming gardeners is to think of leaf shapes, leaf colour, texture, then the flower after. Because when you look at your garden it should be pretty and colourful when it isn't in bloom and that comes from the use of perennials.

A garden really lives only insofar
as it is an expression of faith,
The embodiment of a hope and
a song of praise.
-Russell Page

DORIS MAE OULTON:
GARDENER, ARMSTRONG POINT
This garden has a calmness and stillness to it. It has several water features. It's very quiet and in the morning you come out and feel the peacefulness. It's a very god feeling garden. We added a contemplative garden this year, which I love.

You create something and you can nurture it and watch it grow and it just matures so quickly. There is such a great sense of accomplishment. A garden has to show a person's touch. It has to show an arranging; it has to show someone has put something into it. I don't count gardens that looked like they've been put in by machine but if someone has spoken to that piece then it becomes a garden.

You have to come to peace with your garden in Winnipeg. You just have to learn what works in this climate and stick to that and then it will tumble out and reward you

My favourite plant right now is the hosta, they are like little lace petticoats. They frame things so beautifully and they are always so symmetrical and they are always green and voluptuous. I love the hosta.

In order to comprehend the beauty
of a Japanese garden,
It is necessary to understand
- or at least to learn to understand
- The beauty of stone.
- Lafcadio Hearn
