Winnipeg In Bloom

LOUISA TAVARES:
GARDENER, NORTH WINNIPEG
I have chosen the back yard as my Japanese theme garden. It's a nice size for that type of theme because you have your pavilion for sitting you have your water. You have your walking paths of stone and then you have your beds with trees and flowers.

I just love it, I love looking at textures of green, different shapes. We did have a walking tour. My sister Milou took the pleasure of dressing up in a Kimono and kind of touring people around. I have created on the side courtyard more of European theme, which is of course where I am from. The flow is like you are going from one part of the world to the other. So it becomes a small intimate garden, very serene, very quiet, and the sound of the water is just wonderful.

I love gardening and my favourite time is always early in the morning, when the birds are just starting to come out that's a beautiful time because we have a large pond. It's a combination of birds the bees and they are all sitting at the water's edge, that's a beautiful time.

Gardening is a way of showing
that you believe in tomorrow.

MARY DIXON:
GARDENER, ST VITAL
I love gardening because it's energizing and totally peaceful making. I like a garden that is open and free and a weed that comes up that is interesting, I'll let it be and see what happens.

A garden is a gift that you can give to other people and to yourself. I like to share it which why I have so many gardens on the street. We get a lot of strollers walking by from the Bridge Drive Inn. I like to have people stop and comment.

Well I guess my favourite feature in my garden is the elephant that my son made. Another favourite thing is my round garden full of fancies little things. I love the garden. I come out walk to the river see what is going on check the pots the plants. If I have a cup of coffee in my hand, it very soon gets set down and I find something to do. It's energizing it's interesting the sounds are wonderful.

The secret to gardening in Winnipeg I think is to start early and get out there because it's not a very long season.

To garden is to let optimism
get the better of judgment.
- Eleanor Perenyi

DANIEL MONTEIRO:
GARDENER, WEST END
I became I gardener. I joined a volunteer group dealing with people that wanted to die at home. And it was very important for me watching these people. But I saw they forgot what they got, what kind of pain they had. That's where this garden began.

Every year I create something different. I tear something down and I start all over again. My grapes, they close out the outside world. This is what my yard is about. And with the water running from the pond I might even think I'm by the ocean. Every section of the yard has a different look to it.

Gardening is very therapeutic for me, coming here as far as clearing my head. After a little while I feel fresh. It's where I feel at home. I lose time when I'm out here.

We are stardust,
We are golden,
And we've got to get ourselves
Back to the garden.
- Joni Mitchell

FANNY THORSTEINSON:
GARDENER ST VITAL
I've been a gardener seriously about three years. My husband was quite a gardener so he started me, but he passed away in January and I'm trying to carry it on. And that's why I call it my healing garden, because that's what it's been.

I sit out here a lot; I bring my tea out, sit in my chair. My garden is very important to me. It fills me with good memories and good feelings. I keep telling people it's better than Prozac or any of these things. If you're in a sad state it certainly cheers you!
