Featured Garden-The Garden of Ede'n Gerald

This beautiful garden belonged to my parents, Ede and Gerald Blair, and was located south of Sidney, MB, until they sold the property in 2009. Mom and Dad spent many hours working together to create this little bit of paradise. These photos were taken in 2004 when the garden was probably at it's prettiest! Sadly, the garden no longer exists, but it's still here for all to enjoy.
I hope you enjoy this tribute to the Garden of Ede'n Gerald.

HOPE said...

I want to come back every day for a peaceful stroll...

Deborah said...

You are always welcome in my garden. I'll have some iced tea waiting!

Cathy said...

Those flowers are beautiful, Deb. At first I thought I had an unusual bird in my front yard. Those blue delpheniums (Sp?) are lovely.

Daughter of the King said...

I am on my way, with a stack of books....oh this is beautiful
a respite.

Deborah said...

I'm so glad you are all enjoying our garden!! Delphiniums have always been one of my favorites. We have a picture from years ago...I should scan it and put it was so big around that my husband's baseball cap fit perfectly! LOL
Mom & Dad don't have as many as they used to...Dad is more interested in day lilies now...before that it was gladiola...he also likes the wild flowers...the little purple gentian(sp)on the sidebar.
I couldn't wait for this years I got a head start with these pictures.
I'm not sure...but this site may turn into more of a tribute to my parents' and their garden rather than for other Manitoba gardens...but I will add others if I'm sent some.
Enjoy the iced tea! There's a nice bench over there...or some lawn chairs under the trees...make yourselves at home...or do some weeding if you like! out for the garter snake in the grass under the crocus!

Wow, these pictures are LOVELY and I love the music with the bird noises.

Next time I'll bring some lemonade. (o:

Hi Deborah,
Thanks for visiting my blog.This is great you have your Canadian Garden and I have my Indian one.But mine is not so well managed and manicured like yours.God gave me a vision 4 years ago to turn my church campus into the garden of Eden and with faith we are doing our bits and peices.

I have a penpal and spiritual mentor since the past 25 years. She is an 84 year old Christian lady who lives in Minnesota.I call her Mom.I have never met her, we write by snail mail and talk on the phone.

you really have a mother 's heart. And you don 't look like a grandma at all.

Deborah said...

Mom & Dad spend hours in the garden to keep it this way...but they love it!

That's wonderful that you have kept in touch with your penpal...I wish I had kept in touch with Abha.

And thanks for the sweet compliment!

Amrita said...

Hi Debs, I 've got a Mother 's day award for you on my blog, please receive it

Honest to Ya~Ya said...

What a beautiful garden! How very blessed you are! Thank you for sharing those wonderful photos. I do miss the spring and summer flowers, however; I long for snow here. NC (The States) We rarely have snow here. My boys would love the opportunity to play Hockey in the snow as your boys do.
God bless you Deb. Continue with your writings, God has truly blessed you.
Your sister in Christ,

Jan and Miekie said...

Rebekah said...

Lovely, lovely flowers! Wish I had a garden that pretty...looks like somewhere a Jane Austen character would be found wandering through...

Sandy said...

Lovely to share gardens....mine will be bare bones photos for a while now.
Thanks for your visit.

Wow ! What gorgeous gardens !

Panoptic Pieces A Chilly Pepper said...

Absolutely gorgeous! I wish I would have had the chance to tour your parent's garden personally. The photos are wonderful but I bet to see the garden in person would have been unbelievable! So much work to establish and then maintain. Your parents must have adored gardening!

Deborah said...

Mom and Dad spent hours every day in the garden. Most people would have to hire gardeners to keep up, but yes, they loved it. And loved to share it with visitors.

Deborah said...

Yes, Ellen, it was!
