To Be The Flo­ral Em­blem

Manitoba Gardener Magazine - - LOCAL DIRT -

This com­mem­o­ra­tive, 60-page book­let, was pre­pared by Man­i­toba au­thor, Joseph J Ga­j­dosik, in cel­e­bra­tion of Canada's 150th An­niver­sary this year. The Cana­dian flo­ral tour be­gins with Bri­tish Columbia's Pa­cific Dog­wood, mov­ing east­ward and north­ward to in­clude the north­ern ter­ri­to­ries and end­ing with the prov­ince of Prince Ed­ward Is­land. Ga­j­dosik po­et­i­cally ex­presses the per­son­al­i­ties of Canada's thir­teen flo­ral em­blems. Flow­ers are shown in de­tail and grow­ing in their nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment. Indige­nous peo­ple are rec­og­nized through­out, in the po­ems and in the brief nar­ra­tion of each re­gion's his­tor­i­cal mo­ments. Copies are avail­able lo­cally at McNally Robin­son Books, Indigo Books Ke­nas­ton, Chap­ters Books St Vi­tal Mall, Assini­boine Park Zoo, and The Forks Trad­ing Co., or you can or­der through Joseph di­rectly by phone at 204.261.9235 or email at joseph3@ shaw.ca. $20
