My heart is broken – I’ll be away for these great spring things this weekend. I’m counting on you to go on my behalf, hence today’s Idea File:
Spring Awakening at the Gardiner Museum, May 3 to 5
Gorgeous floral designs by ten top creative spirits, all through the Gardiner museum of ceramic art. Bring a friend, because this Toronto Botanical Garden coupon lets you enjoy 2 for 1 admission to the show (workshops and demos are a little extra).
The Ontario Rock Garden and Hardy Plant Society Super Plant Sale, May 5
It’s one of the hottest plant sales of the season. Lots of rare and unusual perennials, shrubs and trees – not just for rock gardens. If you’re a plantaholic, this is the sale for you. At the Toronto Botanical Garden. Come early to beat the inevitable crowds, but plants will be added as the day goes on.
High Park Cherry Blossoms (finally), May 3 till they drop
One of the city’s most glorious signs of spring, the 2013 Sakura (cherry blooming) has been impatiently awaited. Over the past weeks, the High Park online forum has read like the equivalent of “are we there yet?” Today, the word is out in full caps with a screamer: TREES ARE IN FULL BLOOM! Go.
[Full disclosure: Our covergirl blossoms are not the ones in High Park, but they want to be!]
