“April showers bring May flowers… “
Well, the first hope is that April showers will melt some of the stubborn snow that still lingers in London, Ontario. What a winter we’ve had! April is a very welcome guest and the folks at CLC Tree Services welcome it with open arms. Much as it would be nice if there was a little more heat in the sun’s rays, we will take the + temperatures anyway.
With the calendar flipping over to April this week, Spring feels a little more in grasp. Especially as CLC Tree Services gears up for an exciting event that we have taken part in since 2009 – the London Spring Home & Garden Show. This year’s show runs April 11 – 13, 2014 and will be held at the Western Fair District Agriplex building (845 Florence St). Tickets cost $12 for general admission, $9 for seniors, and children under 12 are free. Plus, if you find you don’t have the time to see everything in one day, you can return for Free!
Friday 12:00pm – 9:00pm
Saturday 10:00am – 8:00pm
Sunday 11:00am – 5:00pm
So what can you expect from the 38th Annual Spring Home and Garden Show? Well, there will be plenty of exhibitors, celebrity sightings galore, seminars at the Idea Stage and Gardening Stage, the Spring Flower Show and Competition, the popular Green Thumb Marketplace, plus lots of prizes for you to win. Pick up coupons from some of the many vendors on site. Stop by Porky’s Grilling school to sample tasty barbecued treats. Admire the Design Centre, where you can pick up ideas for today’s hottest trends in home decor and design.
And make a point to stop by booths #712 and #713. That is where you will find CLC Tree Services of course! Watch the video taken at last year’s Home and Garden show for a sneak peek of what you can expect from this year, but make a point in stopping by again this year regardless. The guys like to talk trees and this year will be no different. In fact, this year they are planning to talk about really big trees; 8′ and taller! Planting that is. When you plant a tree that large, you get instant privacy and shading for your home. For anyone who has lost a valued tree due to London’s battle with the Emerald Ash Borer, you definitely want to talk to us. Just saying.
So mark your calendar; April 11-13, 2014! We personally think it is the best sign of spring yet. See you then!
