Okanagan Garden Evolution

Okanagan Garden Evolution is an ongoing flower garden project. After the removal of fir trees, a rock garden was created. The ground was cleared, rocks brought in and placed on the ground for flower bed edging. Composted soil was filled into the new beds, flowers and shrubs planted.

Okanagan Garden Evolution Okanagan Garden Evolution is to inspire others to build flower gardens as well. If digging is too hard, raised beds can be created, regardless of what lies underneath. Fact is, all gardens produce weeds eventually. Some more, some less – weeds are a fact of life in a healthy garden. Gardening is a fun hobby that is positive and good for the soul.

Evolution – As encyclopedias suggest, evolution, theory in biology postulating that the various types of plants, animals, and other living things on Earth have their origin in other preexisting types and that the distinguishable differences are due to modifications in successive generations. The theory of evolution is one of the fundamental keystones of modern biological theory.

Did you know this ? The diversity of the living world is staggering. More than 2 million existing species of organisms have been named and described; many more remain to be discovered—from 10 million to 30 million, according to some estimates. What is impressive is not just the numbers but also the incredible heterogeneity in size, shape, and way of life—from lowly bacteria, measuring less than a thousandth of a millimetre in diameter, to stately sequoias, rising 100 metres (300 feet) above the ground and weighing several thousand tons; from bacteria living in hot springs at temperatures near the boiling point of water to fungi and algae thriving on the ice masses of Antarctica and in saline pools at −23 °C (−9 °F); and from giant tube worms discovered living near hydrothermal vents on the dark ocean floor to spiders and larkspur plants existing on the slopes of Mount Everest more than 6,000 metres (19,700 feet) above sea level.
