If it were April Fool's Day, maybe I would be smiling.

You won't want to miss this Canada Blooms

The Canada Blooms show is a yearly event that showcases landscape ideas for your yard, and cool things to do with your blooms and other plant materials. This year was no exception. I have seen this show change drastically over ten years at least. It has gone from a true garden show of exceptional size to a much smaller show that now runs concurrently with a home show. Still, there are  celebrity speakers of the Canadian garden world, as well as, Master Gardeners (like me!) who speak and make presentations and give garden advice to the public, a small assortment of plant vendors, landscape designers, and talented floral artists.

This year I found the juried and non-juried floral creations truly magnificent. I will show you my favorites.

Shall we start with the cakes?










Pretty impressive, yes?

How about some floral arrangements





Or a few Juried floral arrangements







Did you make it to an island get- away this winter? Perhaps you wore something like this?





Summer will arrive eventually, so perhaps you might like to add one of these outfits to your wardrobe.


O





 OK. Maybe something a bit more sophisticated.



Fun indeed and gorgeous to boot!  Did you imagine I'd take you to a fashion show?

Those were the highlights for me at the Canada Blooms show this year. I hope you  enjoyed it too.
