What to do now - Gardening Events
What I'm excited to see at Canada Blooms 2011
Get ready to rock and feel the rhythm at this year’s annual gardening festival
It may still be rather frosty in many parts of Canada, but spring is on its way to Canada Blooms, which kicks off Wednesday, March 16 at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto. Here’s a sneak peak at the spectacular gardens (like the one below), presentations and other inspiration that will greet both newbie and seasoned green thumbs.
The “JUNO Rocks” Gardens
The ‘Rhythms’ theme chosen for this year makes sense to me now as this year marks the JUNO Awards’ 40th year. Musical elements will be woven through all of the feature gardens. In particular, there will be a “JUNO Rocks” Garden where five Canadian recording artists have teamed up with a landscape designer to create a garden themed around their music. Stroll through the gardens and get to know Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Sarah Harmer, Jully Black, Ben Heppner and the late Oscar Peterson. The 2011 JUNO Awards take place March 27 in Toronto.
