Back to the Roots at Parkland Gardens with #ColleenOnTheScene

Welcome to Parkland Nurseries booth

Two weeks ago, I had the good fortune to venture down to Parkland Gardens for their Back to the Roots Day alongside my aunt. What a beautiful spot, only three mins East of Red Deer, just off Highway 11. We checked out the various plants, shrubs, and some of the beautiful Aboriginal dancersgifts inside their building. Being a plant person, my aunt came equipped with several questions that were answered by their knowledgeable staff. The Red Deer Aboriginal Dance Troupe performed that day in the gardens, and I have to say, they were truly outstanding.

We were hungry during intermission, so we ventured over to the Pink Bow Steak & Crepes booth for a delicious waffle filled with caramel apple filling and whipped cream, oh so good and their mango slushies with the Strawberry pearls were so refreshing, what a treat.Pink Bow Steak booth

It was then a quick visit to the Central Alberta Humane Society‘s booth to convince my aunt that she really did need a rescue in her life and then home. What a perfect day; Parkland Gardens did put on a lovely event.  If you missed out on this event, you are in luck; this Sunday, Randi Boulton will be performing from 1:00 pm to 3:15 pm, so make sure you call ahead for tickets. Her world-class soulful music is a showstopper not to be missed outdoors in the beautiful setting of Parkland gardens.
