    The Chinese Culture Garden is one of Canada Blooms Feature Gardens. "This garden shows many key features of classical Gardens of Suzhou with constructed landscapes mimicking a natural scenery of rock, stones and ponds with a strategically located pagoda. It reflects the profound metaphysical importance of natural beauty in Chinese culture and their meticulous design." - Pacific East Landscaping. Visitors experienced Chinese culture and traditions. Tea tasting, musical performances in the beautiful pagoda, exotic flowers, genlte flow of water and colourful items added to the visitor's enjoyment. Chinese landscaping is about mimicking mother nature. Digging a pond is to form the sea, falling water is the river and piling rocks and stone is to form the mountains. Planting flowers and bushes forms the forest. Flowers and other vegetation are often chosen for their colour, fragrance and blooming times. Pine, flowering plum and bamboo are among the most popular choices and are known as The Three Friends of Winter. It is because of their endurance in surviving the harsh winter. Chinese think that we should live like them and overcome any hardship that is ahead. The lotus in the lake represents the essence of purity. The lotus grows out of mud yet it remains pure and clean as the beautiful flower buds emerging out of water. The 17th Anniversary Celebration of the annual Flower and Garden Festival has 24 gardens to impress and delight visitors. Canada Blooms at the Direct Energy Centre, Hall A & Heritage Court, March 15 - 24, 2013. It is the largest home and garden show in North America with the theme "The Magic of Spring". www.canadablooms.com www.pacificeastlandscaping.com www.ntdtv.com www.tasteoflifemag.com
