Near my home in Winnipeg Canada is the famed Assiniboine Park and Zoo, established in 1904. Today, it covers 1100 acres, 400 of these acres designed in the English landscape style.
The English Garden portion of the park, created between 1926 and 1927, is known throughout North America for its luxuriant display of thousands of annual and perennial flowers. The English Garden contains nearly three acres of flowers, shrubs and trees in the traditional English style. A large rose garden (with more than 400 bushes of Floribunda, Grandiflora and Rugosa varieties), broken into four sections, surrounds a central lily pond containing fish.
This shot of the English Garden tool and equipment shed, was taken late last fall. It has finally warmed here this weekend and I was reminded of this photo from my archives.
