To breathe easy each person would require approximately 10,000 leaves – or the equivalent to 300 – 500 plants.

 

2012 Dawson Creek Garden Tour – 4 of 8 : )

Barbara and Bill Rose have an amazing garden that fills every spare inch of their Dawson Creek property. Perennials, annuals, shrubs and vegetables flourish everywhere you turn. No one can deny a green thumb – or two – lives here!

2012 Dawson Creek Garden Tour – 1 of 8 : )

The Dawson Creek & District Horticultural Society held their annual Garden Tour & Tea on Sunday July 29, 2012 and as always it was spectacular. Thank you to the organizers and, of course, the gardeners who flung open their gates to let us peek, sniff and dream!

The first garden we stopped at was the picturesque home of Heidi and Charles Kux-Kardos. I have long admired the colorful flowers that weave their way in and out of the perfect picket fence that surrounds their property, so it was great to get a chance to see inside.
