Parkwood Institute

In the midst of winter snow and cold, I'm going to turn the clock back 6 months and share my pictures of the gardens at Parkwood Institute.  If you remember, from July 25 to sept. 20th, I attempted to keep up my posts using my ipad - but I was unable to add any pictures.  so you can go back and read those posts to accompany the pictures over the next week or three.  If you haven't read about what actually happened, you can find that here.

Before I ever got to Parkwood, I clung to the little bits of 'nature' at University Hospital, even though I depended on Mrs. F.G., my son or my sister to push my wheelchair around and the dominant motif was monstrous concrete!

It wasn't much, but there were a number of planters taking the edge off the stark concrete, and I enjoyed everyone.

  And there was a shelter where we gathered to visit everyday the weather was ok.  Tomorrow - I get shifted to Parkwood.

  4. Nice colorful flower photos Stu. We outdoor nature enthusiasts will go to any length to get ourselves outside to find the wonders of nature. Not only to find it but to feel it as well and be a part of it. And especially the situation you were in back then and now. With your limitations and difficulties nature will now be more important to you than ever before.

  5. I remember that time when you couldn't do pictures. Now we get to see and revisit that time, and now it's quite a lovely respite from all the snow and cold! :-)

  6. Hospitals do their best to be colourful, attractive places but there's no use pretending - most of us would far rather not be there.

  7. That is a lot more floral than any hospital I have been in or visited. Love that first burgundy day lily, and you look wonderful in the gazebo. Now there might be snow and a whole lot colder in February.
