SPRING ARRIVES EARLY IN TORONTO @ CANADA BLOOMS GARDEN SHOW

Yesterday, Saucy Minx visited the annual CANADA BLOOMS flower show that runs in conjunction with the National Home Show down at the Enercare Centre (formerly the Direct Energy Ctr) in the CNE Grounds in Toronto. The beautiful flower displays were breath-taking and the gardenscapes and fountains were beautiful – a great respite from the chilly windy weather outside…brrrrrr. Come walk the aisles with Saucy Minx and enjoy the colourful sights and relaxing sounds…..20170310_115950Let’s start with the very first display you see (above) as you walk through from the Home Show. Happy 150th birthday, Canada, in flowers!
