The other day, MsDebbieP and I were chatting via the GT messages, and I mentioned that I was going to be going to the Stratford Garden Festival. Unfortunately she had another commitment and couldn’t make it, so I thought that I’d share a few photos that I took whilst there.

Notice the grumpy guy in the GT T-shirt. LOL

Lots of garden ideas, garden art, seeds, tubers, bulbs, potted plants, tools etc. I think it was one of the better shows in Stratford. My sisters with whom we went all concurred on that thought.

Very nice! I see you were wearing your Garden Tenders t-shirt! I like the stone bird houses – I think some kind of stone structure- an orb, etc – is in my garden’s future. (along with all the other projects I never get to – lol)

Hey not fair…...I want a shirt like that too .LOL

Hello everyone, long time no speak, hope everyone is doing ok and anticipating the garden season again? I am well, just waiting for my posting message before I put the house on the market and then go to the other side to buy another.

March break ending…..left Ottawa last Sunday for Kingston ON and then onto Watertown NY and then Syracuse. We got back Wednesday night, weather down there was a lot nicer than here, not a single pile of snow on the ground. Visited the M.OS.T, the waterloo outlets and the carousel mall, also opened a US address mailing box at the UPS store for online purchases

I was surprised when I saw your posting about the Stratford Flower Show, jroot. Was it earlier this year than usual? I was still in Florida! I’m sorry I missed it. Thanks for the wonderful pictures. Looks like it was spectacular, as usual. Well, I’m home now and with these wonderful (I think) temps I have been busy cleaning up the gardens already. I will be watching for Spring Flower Shows around here.
