This one’s for art and garden lovers!
Next Sunday, March 6 from noon to 4 p.m., Edison and Ford Winter Estates will host the Art in Bloom art show.
This unique one-day art show features floral designs paired with works of art from the estate’s Sustainable Conceptions exhibit.
Prior to the show, 15 local Garden Council members are each paired with a piece of artwork and create a floral display based on their interpretation of the art — using the same colors and design feel.
The art show takes place in the Edison Caretaker’s House, an original “Cracker House” and one of the oldest standing structures in Lee County.
Held in many cities across the country, Art in Bloom is a nationally sanctioned event through the National Garden Clubs and the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs.
Edison Ford has a long history with garden clubs, as Mina Edison was a founding member of the Periwinkle Garden Club — the first garden club in Fort Myers.
