Merilyn Simonds sees gardening as an extension of her writing career. “It’s the yin to my yang,” she says.

Inga’s Garden

As you drive down a hill from either direction and round the corner, your head will turn to the colours in Inga Woitowich’s garden.

It is a peaceful garden. It starts right at the curb. You step onto the welcoming sound of a pea gravel path. The crunch-crunch underfoot bids you come to the quiet and slows you down.
