Summer not far away

Summer not far away

  Gardeners dream of warm, sunny days on cold winter nights   This garden in Lo-Ellen Park is not hard to find. It comes right out to the street. Indeed, Bev Bourget’s flower beds take up most of the front yard. Whenever you pass, something is always in bloom. How can that be? Because there [...]

Hibbses’ garden is stunning

Hibbses’ garden is stunning

Bernice and Bob have created an oasis in the heart of the city. I park the car, walk across the street to Bernice and Bob Hibbs’ home, and smile. The dappled light on the front garden seems to wink at me; this garden is a winner. Hostas of several varieties, still wet with dew, welcome [...]

Go bold!

(NC)—For a long time, bold colours seemed too juvenile to use in abundance, too boisterous to let loose in a sophisticated setting.

Putting Down New Roots

Putting Down New Roots

When we moved to an old farm property in Wanup, we brought from our former garden cherished roots, all with their own stories: daylilies, bellflower and peonies, delphiniums, columbine and phlox, seeds of poppies and Queen Anne’s Lace  and, most precious, a clump of wild orchids that had moved several times from their original home [...]

Poinsettia remains most popular Yuletide plant

Poinsettia remains most popular Yuletide plant

Very few Canadians pronounce poinsettia (poin-set-ee-uh) the correct way. Generally, we call the beautiful plant “point-set-ah. It doesn’t really matter. They are the most popular Yuletide plants sold in Canada and it would not be Christmas without them. About 70 million are sold each year in North America. Their botanical name, Euphorbia pulcherrima, means “very [...]
