Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day

The Idea behind Bloom Day is that garden bloggers from around the world on the 15th of every month will place photos on their website of what is in bloom in their home and garden. The index of other bloggers can be found on Carol's website,

Canada Blooms Preview Cocktail Reception

March 15, 2011

The opening night party for Canada Blooms has been an annual tradition right from the start. Originally the Gala was a black tie affair. Tickets were around $200 each and all of the accoutrements reflected this. At the reduced rate of $75, the event has relaxed a great deal. But this casual atmosphere doesn't prevent the participants from having a good time while enjoying a privileged advanced showing of the gardens and floral installations.

The Southern Ontario Orchid Society holds their annual show in February on Valentine's weekend at the Toronto Botanical Garden.


In the past it has attracted exhibitors and vendors from as far away as Florida, California and Hawaii. This was primarily due to the fact that the society has an official American Orchid Society Judging Centre.

Just like a racehorse, the more wins an orchid gets, the more money people are willing to pay for it.

Here is my entry for January's Bloom Day, Amaryllis 'Evergreen'. It seems like many people have the same taste in amaryllis. This is my second year for this amaryllis, and it has 9 flowers on one scape.

In the photo you can tell that I have removed most of the stamens. I have been brushing the stigma with pollen from Amaryllis 'Lemon Sorbet' with hopes that any seedlings that may come will be more compact. The flower on 'Evergreen' stands 28 inches tall.

If you are hosting a garden related event in the GTA and would like it covered in or would like to place an e-poster about it on our Events Calendar, just contact me. I am always delighted to promote anything gardening in Toronto.
