I have only been a resident of the Parkgate community for three years and I often wonder who creates the artistic bouquets placed on the intersection of Mount Seymour Parkway and Berkley Avenue.
I like to think the creator is contributing a little piece of beauty to the world; however, I also imagine the flowers are in memory of someone’s loss. Your creations warm my day and I anticipate your new designs. Thank you for sharing.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The flowers are in tribute to two teenage sisters, Deep Cove residents Lisa and Linda Maier, who lost their lives in a car accident at the intersection of Mount Seymour Parkway and Berkley Road on July 14, 1990. Every week after the accident, the sisters’ grandparents would put fresh flowers inside a pole on the median at Berkley, in plain sight of drivers waiting in the left-hand turn bay. The sisters’ mom, Rosemary Mason (née Maier) now puts the flowers there in loving memory of her daughters.
