The Kelowna Art Gallery commissioned Kelowna based artist Lynden Beesley to create an outdoor courtyard space. She paid tribute to the Medieval herb/physic garden, using raised beds arranged symmetrically around the centre of the space in which a sculptural water feature is positioned. Beesley made seating benches under arbors custom woven from Willow, Dogwood and vine canes by local artist Annabel Stanley
Inspired by Molly Bloom's soliloquy in James Joyces' Ulysses
"...I was a Flower of the mountain yes when I put the rose in my hair like the Andalusian girls used or shall I wear a red yes and how he kissed me under the Moorish Wall and I thought well as well him as another and then I asked him with my eyes to ask again yes and then he asked me would I yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him yes and drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes.
