Page 2 January 28th, 2010 Dakota Trails Gardens by Dr. Larrie Wanberg and Tales GARDENS are an integral part of ND. Themes too are core. ND is known as the "Peace Garden" state - the only state to physically share an extraordinary garden with another country. Theme gardens are common, sometimes national-styles, like Japanese gardens, or more often honoring people, times, or places - pioneer, veteran, rock, botanical, beer, flower and a long list of types. Gardens are reflective; parks are relaxing. Both combine the art of Nature's beauty, color, fragrance and the best of nature and people in shaping an important gathering place within a community. This last weekin California, I strolled through several beautiful gardens, even a "winter garden," where the plants and bushes had been pruned back - ready for spring - yet, the garden retained its beauty in form, despite the absence of much color. Another was a "secret garden" adjacent to a cottage, which was a private garden with a artfully groomed hedge surrofindingit, but one could "peek" inside, capture its strong appeal, and walk away feeling differently than a moment ago. One thing I observed, however, was that the gardens were all patterned after one's that I've seen before -- the themes, the geometric layout and design, and artful balance of color, etc.- all well and good. But if you had a tourism goal in mind to attract tourists to stop in your ND hometown, it would be difficult to compete with such elegant gardens by tradition alone. Because gardens are generally "reflective," I sat on this bench near an arch opening through a thick hedge that made you stoop slightly as you entered. When you straightened up, it was "WOW].; Hundreds of small birds flew up to form a kind-of-ceiling for a moment until they resettled in trees and bushes that framed the gardens. And as you walked along a path on the perimeter, small flocks would flair up and resettle, flair up and resettle, Perhaps a dozen different species were in this bird community. ~ Then I sat for some reflective moments. I kept re-visualizing the beautiful "Rainbow" gardens between Mayville and Portland along the Goose River. The gardens are groomed and nurtured by the local garden club. Interpretative signs along the path told the story of the flora. With my eyes in a partial stair mode, I strolled through an imaginary garden called a "Story Garden." Birdhouses that were custom-made from barn wood lined the paths like a Main Street of a pioneer village. The "storefront-type" birdhouses were designed as caricaturized resemblances of original old storefront pho When...

The dogs have fine sport chasing the old scabby bulls that take shelter in the woods, but they are very alert and active for animals of their bulk, and the dogs cannot hurt them.
