Hit me with your best Pink Punch, as named the installation beneath a canopy of trees in the Jardins de Métis/Reford Gardens beautifying Grand-Métis, Quebec. Cords of pink dress a portion of these trunks, fanning out 3 to 4 feet at the base into a communal seating area. Made of natural rubber pink latex rope to distinguish a creative boundary as to the end of wilderness and the invitation to the garden. Designed by architects Nick Croft and Michaela MacLeod for the 2013 International Garden Festival.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
