My Sister Dale’s Garden is a magical path lined with fruit trees, gardenias, day lilies, and many other flowering plants. When entering her garden you are immediately captivated by its tropical feel even though it’s located in the California Desert. We’ve moved since the original garden and started a second Dale’s Garden in Tucson Arizona.
It all began as a tribute to my only sister, just two and a half years younger than me. Dale was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and passed away two years later after a tango like dance with the disease.
The pictures on this website document the beauty and life that goes on after Dale’s death. Please visit the picture galleries where you will find over 5000 pictures. A whisper of Dale’s ashes grace the gardens and I believe that she is the caretaker of every bulb, plant, tree and bird that flourishes. It started in a small area and then expanded to include a koi pond, grape arbor and vegetable garden. Dale’s nurturing touches every living thing on our property. The garden is a testament to the bravery of those who have had a cancer journey.
May Dale’s Garden bring joy and hope to all who have been touched by cancer.
