I managed to attend Canada Blooms three times this year, although two of the days were spent in meetings.  I'll tell you, there's nothing like a garden show to motivate one as spring draws near.  Here are a few of the beautiful plants that inspired me.
The prestigious Landscape Ontario Award went to Donna Dawson of for her contribution to the world of gardening as a writer and garden travel agent. She is one busy lady and well known to garden writers. I started contributing to icangarden way back in 2002, you can see my articles under the section, the latest from...

  7. Sigh, those flowers are so beautiful, I love the tulips especially. You will be motivated with these gorgeous images! Hope you have a good week and can dig in your garden soon!

  8. The followers and photography are beautiful. So nice to meet you & I am happily following you too!

  9. Your photos are really, really beautiful, Judith! I can see why you were inspired. We have some drier weather this week, finally, so it feels very good to be outside in the garden. Wishing you a great first week of spring! - g

  10. Hi Judith, I agree, these flowers are inspiring! I especially love the tulips in conjunction with the azaleas and hyacinths. Such color! I am so glad you got to attend Canada Blooms and that you shared your beautiful photos with us. You inquired about the fox in my yard. He was eating a rabbit. I did see him go after one of the stray cats in the area but he was no match for the cat's speed and ability to climb trees - thank goodness!
    Hugs, Beth
