Then we were off to the Gage Park Greenhouses, which have been turned into Oz for the Spring Tide Bulb show. We spoke to some of the City of Hamilton staff there and found out that, unlike the fall Mum Show, there is no budget for this event. The staff put it together with no cash given at all, and they did a terrific job! Also, I'm not just saying that because I worked in this department as a City of Hamilton summer student for 4 years running (thanks for my undergrad, taxpayers!!!). The blustery, grey day was a perfect one to go into the greenhouses and smell spring coming.

|I found the slippers!|

After we were done in the Greenhouse, we decided to go for a walk in the park. Gage Park was deserted - we had it to ourselves, excluding some dogs who were very kindly walking their owners.
