Sneak Peek | BC Home + Garden Show


Wednesday, marks the first day of this weekend's BC Home and Garden Show at BC Place, and I stopped in for a quick preview and to judge the Living Melodies exhibit (eight beautiful garden plots inspired by famous tunes).  And quite gorgeous I might add. (Above: A tranquil oasis "The Conservatory" under BC Place (reminds me of a Jeremy Miranda painting and inspired by Baroque composer, Handel's 300th birthday happening this week). 

About The Conservatory: The Conservatory Garden was designed and created by Rose Blamey, WindRose Garden Design and Kimberley Loewen, Flourish Garden Design together with the plant material supplied by Art’s Nursery, the Parkside greenhouse supplied by BC Greenhouse Builders  and the 300 year old Belgian cobbles supplied by Stone Event.

That first garden scene is unbelievable! I love going to garden shows and this one looks stellar. Too bad I'm on the other coast in the country to the south. Thanks so much for sharing!

Inspirational post and a faintly nostalgic one, too. I used too have a greenhouse with a n iron table overlooking a pond, and I loved it.. Then I moved 20 miles away, back to manhattan.. Sigh..
But all well,
Love the color sinks!!
Also thrilled to see flowers and greenery !
