A friend is one who looks past the knothole in your fence, or your unmanicured lawn, and simply delights in the beautiful flowers you’re nurturing in your garden.


Story on the back:

Martine Gow-Cooper is a multi-faceted jewel of an artist. I have especially admired her stained-glass art and her paintings.
Martine moved from her artsy community of Merrickville, Ontario to her new home on the west coast a few years ago. When I visited her garden, I breathed deeply of the randomly-organized, welcoming beauty and thought, “She’s home,” and so was I.
