Brian Bixley reflects on fifty years of tending the same piece of land. While touring the garden pathways that branch out in all directions, one discovers mysterious areas filed with delightful surprises. He muses on the meaning and poetry of a garden of such delights.

Tom Hobbs began selling seeds from his backyard as a child. His eye for beautiful plants led to the creation of one of Vancouver’s most famous floral shops, which served the rich and famous. After forty years of retail Tom, continues to work to proliferate beauty. His wry sense of humour, and tireless work ethic guide him as he hybridizes new varieties of orchids and nerines.
