Painter's daylily blooms at exhibit
Exhibition in late November for her painting of a daylily.
“They are a daylily – they only last for one day,” LeGeyt said, who lives southwest of Okotoks. “The big challenge is to be able to capture that flower in its essence within that day. There’s a big time factor for sure.”
She’s a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to art, as she didn’t use a photograph of her daylily.
“I cut it and brought it inside,” she said. “I only paint from live specimens, not from photographs. You can see a great deal more with your eyes than a photograph.
“A photograph doesn’t allow you to see everything in focus, which is what your eyes allow you to do.”
She added she gets a better perspective of colour from a live subject as well.
LeGeyt, who is a member of the Okotoks Garden Club, came by her love of flowers naturally.
“My grandfather came to Calgary in 1912 and lived by the Stampede Grounds,” LeGeyt reminisced. “That was the first place I ever saw columbines. I thought it was the most beautiful flower that I have ever seen. I continue to grow columbines in my garden.”
She also developed a love of science, including earning her masters of arts from the University of Hawaii.
“The abundance of things that grow in Hawaii is where a lot of things took off for me,” she said.
Her master thesis was based on plant material used for hand-fans in Micronesia.
The research had LeGeyt su... (Western Wheel)Feb 2, 2016

Parker: Brookfield Residential's latest project wins community's approval
Livingston will be a major town centre on the terminus of the Green Line LRT. Over 30,000 people (greater than the population of Okotoks) will live in a community that will sport over one million square feet of commercial and institutional use.
Brookfield will launch a public engagement survey in the coming weeks seeking feedback on key features and amenities in a new community now identified as South Bearspaw.
It is on a plateau directly overlooking the Bow River, foothills, mountains and also the downtown skyscrapers. The 150 hectares (plus 38 hectares of ecological reserve) will hold an anticipated population of more than 7,000 people.

Ten Canadian small businesses doing it right
Ms. Nering, co-owner of Wild About Flowers in Okotoks, Alta. “And because they have well-established relationships with indigenous wildlife and insects, you end up creating a garden that has a purpose beyond visual appeal.”
With its roots planted deeply in Alberta soil, Wild About Flowers is a proudly regional business, says Ms. Nering. Today, she and her husband have one more reason to feel proud: Wild About Flowers is among 10 regional winners in this year’s Small Business Challenge Contest sponsored by The Globe and Mail and Telus Corp.“It means a lot to be recognized by the Challenge contest,” says Ms. Nering. “We’re a niche market business, for sure, but we believe we’re doing something that has a great impact on the environment.”The regional awards recognize outstanding businesses in the country’s Atlantic, north, west and central regions. Each regional winner will receive Telus services or devices worth $1,500. This year’s regional winners came up against stiff competition – and plenty of it. More than 3,300 small businesses from across the country entered the Challenge contest.“The regional recognition highlights the amazing strength and diversity of the small businesses we have across Canada,” says Katherine Scarrow, digital content strategist at The Globe and one of the Challenge judges. “The level of competitio...

Signal Hill and Okotoks set to become Alberta's first 'dementia-friendly ...
Alberta’s first “dementia-friendly” communities in the southwest Calgary neighbourhood of Signal Hill and the nearby town of Okotoks.
As the country’s aging population increases and more people are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, The Brenda Strafford Foundation wants to ensure seniors are remaining in their homes as long as possible.
In a dementia-friendly community, people active in the neighbourhood — police, politicians, community groups, transportation providers and employees at local grocery stores, banks and shops, for example — are provided with training to identify people with the brain disorder and provide them the support, and understanding, that’s needed.
The training is designed to make communities more inclusive, supportive and accessible for people with dementia by heightening awareness and reducing stigma, which means people with the disorder can be independent, active citizens in the community, and remain in their homes longer.
Mike Conroy, CEO and president of The Brenda Strafford Foundation, dreams of seeing every community across the province become dementia-friendly, and to start, training is being planned for Signal Hill and Okotoks, where The Brenda Strafford Foundation operates facilities for seniors.
“Our view is because we’ve got facilities and expertise in these communities, we’re trying to leverag... (Calgary Herald)
