Colour at the Show


Canada Blooms was all about colour to get us into the mood for spring.   I thought I would show you some of them today.  The photos have not been edited but are SOOC.

blue orchids













Who would have thought to see blue orchids.   Lona Dawn of a Hocking Hill Garden showed a photo of blue orchids on her blog a week or so ago when she was at the Ohio Garden Show.   I just had to show that they were shown at Canada Blooms too and a price of $39.99 a pot.





























Home Depot was a big sponsor of the show this year and everywhere were these bright orange Emperor Tulips.   This was at the Home Depot booth.

Jully's pink tulips

Jully Black,  a Juno winner, had a garden  based on a song of hers called “Running” that emphasized that although we are all of different races we are all equal.   She used lots of pink rhododendron and tulips in her garden.

Even in the market place there was colour everywhere.   I loved how this booth put all the like colours on the shelf together.  Those pots are so pretty in plaid.

Liney Moon













My husband took this photo as he was the only one willing to stand out on our back deck in the cold to take pictures of the moon as it was close to the earth.  

I got lots more to show you but that is enough for today.   Have a great day.   Valerie

I know an orchid grower and judge. I'll have to ask him how they came up with a blue orchid.

Hi Val, Love the pink plaid pots. I should have bought one, so pretty.

Valerie, I saw the blue orchids and was amazed. Who knew orchids came in blue? Beautiful. Love the mass display of tulips, such vibrant colors. I didn't make it to any garden shows this year, but thanks to all the great blogs out there, I didn't miss out.

Kind of wishing I had bought one of those blue orchids - aren't they beautiful?

I'm enjoying your glimpses into Canada Blooms. Oh if only we could have displays like they set up.

Hi Val,

Your photos are stunning of the show! Those blue orchids are simply gorgeous. I discovered your blog through Mosaic Monday. I hope to meet some new people as I am a gardener too.
