Huckleberry Botanic Regional Preserve
Markham Nature Park and Arboretum
We have been walking and talking for 30 years, pruning each other’s ideas. My friend, the gardener, our friendship, the garden.
Of course! the path to heaven
doesn't lie down in flat miles.
It's in the imagination
with which you perceive
and the gestures
with which you honor it.
-excerpt from The Swan by Mary Oliver
