Thompson Rivers University has a Pagoda Tree – the only one in town. They also have a ‘Living Wall’. “A Living what?” you ask. The FOG knows! Find these Friends of the Garden any Wednesday night at House #10 on the TRU campus across from the University’s Activity Centre. Catch a Free Tour of the horticulture exotica including xeriscaped grasses, the Pagoda Tree and the Living Wall. Tours begin at 6:30 PM continuing to about 8 leaving you lots of time to catch the ‘Golden Hour’ at sunset. FOG will be conducting tours until Aug 15th. The Gardens are a perfect place to take your visitors or have a family picnic. All are welcome.
Parking is free after 5 PM and on Weekends. If you want to catch the early morning light the Weekend is likely your best bet, David Williams, Botany Professor Emeritus advises. Students are sleeping in so you have a clear field of the flowers and architecture and solitude to compose your macro shots. www.trufog.org or call 250-828-5426 and leave a message for more info.
