Even after a not-so-difficult winter weather-wise, it’s always nice to look forward to spring.
Get a head start on spring sensations by tiptoeing through the tulips, daffodils, roses, daisies, pansies and petunias.
They will be in abundance along with other gems of the earth at two highly anticipated garden shows in Stratford and Toronto.

Blooming good time
“Celebrating Our Roots,” conveying an intertwining of nature and music, is this year’s theme for the Stratford Garden Festival next Thursday through Sunday (March 1 to 4).
The landscapers will “draw their inspiration from the vast resource of our musical roots” in creating their gardens, said Deedee Herman of the hosting Lung Association, Huron-Perth.
In its 12th year, the event at the Stratford Rotary Complex (353 McCarthy Rd.) features “lots of new exhibitors as well as returning favourites,” she said.
