The Agave Americana in the Gardens
Thanks to Global News for a wonderful article and for providing this week's 'agave update'. Close up pictures of the blooms on the ends of the branches and at the top
of the stalk opened up in mid-July.
Visitors, both locals and tourists, kept the area buzzing with conversation and lots of picture taking.
The Halifax Public Gardens has been home to this Agave plant for more than two decades. Agave plants flower only once in their approximately 25-year life cycle.

Paint The Gardens
Following our 150th anniversary celebration in the Halifax Public Gardens last summer, there have been requests for similar events in 2018. One of those is Paint the Gardens!
Feedback from artists suggest they enjoyed the opportunity to paint, and from Gardens’ personnel and the general public we learned that people loved seeing artists in the Gardens. The Friends of the Public Gardens are delighted to welcome artists back to the Gardens this summer.
Dates: Wednesdays and Saturdays
June 16 – September 15, 2018
