Welcome to our homepage, a place where we plan to share some of our experiences of ornamental gardening in a northern climate. We're Maureen and Glen in Regina, SK, Canada (map and climate details).
The last few years we have been trying to grow and overwinter a variety of perennials in our garden. Although our primary gardening interest is perennials, we also enjoy trying many different annuals each year, too.
This site also features photos of over 400 of Saskatchewan's
native plants, photographing and gardening with native wildflowers
is another hobby of ours.
