Three More Sleeps

This Wednesday is the Opening to Canada Blooms 2010.  Very Exciting.  A chance to smell the flowers and look at great gardens, hear fabulous speakers and shop the market place.  I hear Martha Stewart will be there on Saturday.   My friend Jennifer and I were there today setting up our Master Gardeners of Ontario booth and stage.  Need to go back tomorrow and finish up.  The mosiac is made up of past Canada Blooms pictures.   For more mosiac visit Mary at http://dearlittleredhouse.blogspot.com/   Don't forget to wear green on Wednesday for St. Paddy's Day.

Looks wonderful! I go to the Philadelphia Flower Show every year. There's nothing like a flower show to get you in the mood for Spring!

Valerie, Flower shows can be such an inspiration- all those vibrant colors and fresh new ideas to make gardens look beautiful! Alas, I can only look at other people's gardens- I tend to have a brown thumb. LOL My SIL is a master gardener and she has such a pretty yard. I can keep ferns and potato vines alive, along with a few hardy flowers. I forget to water them.... poor babies live as long as they can and then just poop out on me! Grin~
I see you follow Lori E. Is she not just a hoot? Love her oodles. The header picture is the Sullivan homestead, now "going to the earth" as the Irish say.... It will eventually be taken over by the vines and decay. Thanks for stopping by.
