canadabloomsCanada Blooms 2013 is coming and it is time to start thinking about whether or not to make the trek into the dreaded Toronto Traffic.
Some years ago we took the train in and made a weekend of it.
This year it is:
17th Annual Canada Blooms
March 15-24, 2013 (Friday-Sunday)

As an added bonus the Home show is also on at the same time and the same location.

We’ve also down bus trips to the show in the past and this year you may try out:

Napanee, Trenton, Kingston
McCoy Tours; tel: 613-384-0012, email:, web:
Mar 20, 2013 Canada Blooms $79 + HST Wed
Mar 21, 2013 Canada Blooms $79 + HST Thu
Mar 23, 2013 Canada Blooms $79 + HST Fri

It’s a fun show, always rushed, always crowded. Especially try to avoid weekends and evenings. A bus trip generally means you can only hit the high points, maybe sit in on a seminar, workshop or lecture.
