The Magic of Spring at Blooms

Welcome to Canada Blooms, the large Home & Garden Show held in Toronto each March.  This is the entrance and the theme this year is 'The Magic of Spring'.  I want to share a small portion of the magic with you through my collages for Mosaic Monday hosted by Mary at Little Red House.
It was exhilarating to see trees in bud, spring bulbs, azaleas, hellebores and feature gardens while we still have snow on the ground outside.  The show runs from March 15-24 and is well worth visiting if you're in the area.

  1. I've never visited Canada Blooms, though I've read about it in magazines and tried to plan a trip to coincide. Ah well, it is something to look forward to!

  4. Oh how wonderful to catch a preview of spring. It looks like a great flower show. I always love the smells of a flower show...it's so intoxicating and we forget it over a long winter. Will you be going back to visit again?

    Thanks for stopping by! Lots of robins around - not sure they all left my area for the Winter, as I saw a couple of them in Feb.

  32. So beautiful. I love all those pastel colours. I used to live near an area where there were many plant and tree growers here in The Netherlands. Once a year there would be a large international show for growers. I used to go there. I really loved it. I live too far away now.
    Have a great day.

  35. Gosh those flowers look inviting and all Spring-like! We too are buried under snow after this last storm this week dropped an additional 16"! And after I had just put in my order for plants for my new garden... *sigh*. Good thing the order won't ship until sometime late in April!
    Hugs,
