A floral portrait example from Guisachan Heritage House public garden in Kelowna.

Pure white tulips stand tall in the garden, celebrating spring and new beginnings. They symbolize love, forgiveness, purity, worthiness and triumph. The strong stems rise up with bold oval blooms reaching for the sun to welcome warmer weather.

I am interested in cultural symbolism, the "language of flowers" and the plant knowledge understood by our grandparents, but now unfamililiar to the language of our children. Art can open conversations about plant history, traditions, symbolism and care. 

Public gardens make important contributions to human wellbeing. They are important as role models for land stewardship and they are places for public enagement. People make attachments to nature, starting in public places and then at their own homes.
