Say it with flowers

Daphne Donaldson, health and safety advisor with UVic’s occupational health and safety office, poses among the rhododendrons with a new 2003 wall calendar featuring the botanical delights of UVic’s Finnerty Gardens. An avid photographer and garden enthusiast, Donaldson shot all of the full-colour images in the calendar. “Finnerty Gardens is UVic’s 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 people’s 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.
