This weekend, there is a big celebration to mark the 100th anniversary of the opening of Summerland Ornamental Gardens.
I’m excited to be participating in the celebrations as a tour guide in the xeriscape garden.
Created in 1991, it was the first xeriscape demonstration garden in Canada, and is still the largest.
The Ornamental Gardens have been a special place to me all my life.
In the 1950s, my grandmother took us there for many family picnics.
Granny would always take a walk through the gardens with her friend the superintendent.
