Garden artist

Nang Xayasomphou made a special trip back to Trail this year to help Communities in Bloom create whimsical greenery within its Trail Sissinghurst’ White Garden in Jubilee Park. Nang was a longtime employee at Columbia Valley Greenhouses, and after relocating to Vancouver last year, she was happy to return to the city to plant flowers and sculpt “Elizabeth,” a shapely garden sculpture crafted from various mosses, and “Lola,” a statue made from twine and other seasonal ephemera. - Sheri Regnier
