2010 Salmon Festival flower show - a feast for the eyes

On Canada Day, the 2010 Steveston Salmon Festival was in full swing, when I arrived on the scene at 2:30 PM.

As always, the craft fair drew a huge crowd of serious shoppers, browsers, and bloggers (well, at least one anyway).

After circling the gym twice, I slipped out of the building and into the Net Shed, where the flower show was held. It was a Kodak moment in leaves and petals!

Before I share some of the amazing displays, let me assure you that I know absolutely nothing about flowers, gardening, formal arrangements, and how to appraise what has been tended by loving hands. The photos you are about to see happened to speak to me- with their harmonious colours, delicate lines, effusive spirit, and natural simplicity. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Happy Canada Day, Steveston, and keep on blooming!
