Today, I decided to go to the 11 am seminar about edible flowers. Many cultures, such as Chinese, Middle Eastern, and East Indian use these edible flowers in their cooking, traditional decorations and rituals, and other purposes. At 12:30 pm, I checked out a seminar about growing an edible garden that attracts beneficial insects that pollinate these edible plants. Birds, bees, butterflies, and many other wildlife animals can be beneficial inhabitants in your garden. Create a happy habitat, in which you can coexist together in peace and harmony, enjoying each other’s company as well as help each other out. At 2 pm, I decided to check out a cooking demonstration by 2 or 3 French Chefs. Chef Tony Esnault, his wife, and another young male chef demonstrated three French recipes, appetizer, main meal, and dessert. I took some notes, but I will veganize the recipes later. At 3 pm, it was noted that National Public Garden Week will be from May 11th to May 19th. The Sherman Gardens Director displayed snapshots from 5 public gardens for décor inspiration. These gardens are like an artform. I remember going to Butchart Garden in Victoria, Canada, back in the summer of 1982, after high school graduation. These 5 gardens are similar to Butchart Garden. At 4:30 pm, I decided to go to the last seminar, which is about taking care of roses. I took a lot of notes, but I am not sure if I can handle taking care of roses. I need to find a really easy plant that is hard to kill.
Now, I need to organize my notes and post tips about what I learned at these seminars and the overall garden show event.
