I know that it is very dangerous to say such things living in Alberta, because usually there is at least one more winter storm that hits around mid-April. I however, cannot help myself from dreaming. I find that I am searching Google for gardens here in Calgary and impatiently awaiting the day they'll be open to the public. Or at least bloomed enough to go visit.
My favorite find so far has been The Lougheed Gardens located on the 2.8 acres of the Lougheed House grounds.
This year the theme for the gardens will be "Patchworks", and their aim is to make the gardens look like the patterns of log cabin quilts. Quite an endeavor I know! I for one, can't wait for the flowers to bloom!
