CALENDAR: FLOWERS AND FRINGES

29 02 2012

As the weather gets warmer (or at least sunnier!) the Garden City starts to live up to its name. Check out  rare flowers at the Orchid Show and Sale and tally up the ones around your neighbourhood for the 36th annual Flower Count. Or, chop your locks for charity and start next week with a new ‘do. Plus, one of the biggest Canadian rock groups is kicking off their cross-country tour here – plenty of reasons to look forward to this weekend.
