Say it with flowers
Daphne Donaldson, health and safety advisor with UVics
occupational health and safety office, poses among the rhododendrons
with a new 2003 wall calendar featuring the botanical delights
of UVics Finnerty Gardens. An avid photographer and
garden enthusiast, Donaldson shot all of the full-colour images
in the calendar. Finnerty Gardens is UVics hidden
treasure, says Donaldson, who hopes her photos, all
donated for use in the calendar, will help to raise the profile
of the gardens and brighten up peoples lives
a little. Gardens and flowers give me such a sense of
peace and well-being, she grins, so you could
say that this is another health and safety initiative.
The calendars are on sale for $14.95 plus tax at the UVic
Bookstore. All proceeds will go toward enhancing the gardens.
