VanDusen Flower Show 1999

 
What a fantastic show! We were blessed with perfect weather on the evening of the Gala - no rain - and warmth to walk around and view the 200 Flower displays, garden vignettes and exhibits. This show is produced by the VanDusen Botanical Gardens Association, a non profit volunteer organization and all monies received support on-going operations, development and educational programmes of the VanDusen Botanical Gardens Association.

This is Canada's largest outdoor garden show in North America and held on the Great Lawn in Vancouver's spectacular VanDusen Botanical Garden.

There were Basket and Container Competitions, a huge Marketplace, a Horticultural Pavillion showcasing clubs, Artists displaying paintings and prints and The Author's Corner featuring well known garden and cookbook authors. Of course there were also wonderful places to eat!

This was quite the evening and quite the show...make sure you attend next year! I will have a tour to Vancouver/Victoria gardens June 2-6th, 2000 - just in time to take in this event!

David Tarrant and Joanne Baskerville were looking their best on this happy evening. I missed getting Des Kennedy and Marjorie Harris photos, but maybe next year?
