A few weeks ago I attended Canada Blooms 2011 an event noted to be "Canada's largest and most prestigious"garden festival.
Now since photography and gardening are 2 of my 3 favourite things it was not an event I was going to miss. If I could have brought my dogs Kodee and Becky, it would have been a 3 for 3 day of my favourite things!
It is always fascinating to see not just the variety of flowers and plants but how each year they are carefully crafted to be displayed in a new artistic representation. Loved so many works this year. Flowers used to depict paintings as if applying paint, fantasy gardens, walls of flowers, mosaics, eco-friendly children's gardens and more!
Designers gathered worldwide to compete. The show offered 6 acres of garden designs bursting with imagination and colour. Not to disappoint the shopper, it also housed 10,000 square feet of shopping.
Better to get on with viewing it in all it's glory than for me to continue rambling. Enjoy, a select few that represent the best of my photos of the day.
