The North Sydney Garden Club, of Cape Breton, Canada, will be holding the annual rose and flower show this month.
The theme for the 43rd show is "Canadian Pride." Though participants can only submit one entry for each category, the competition is open to amateur floral enthusiasts as well as members of the garden club, the Cape Breton Post reports.
"It seems that each year the show participants become more creative," Anne Marie Steele, the convenor for this year's show, told the news source. "You are only limited by your own imagination. We encourage young people to participate, and they always seem to come up with fresh, new ideas for their submissions."
The public is invited to view the show, as well as partake in afternoon tea. They'll be treated to a wide variety of roses and perennials, as well as festive, thematic arrangements.
Many people across the globe find floral arrangements enjoyable, possibly because of the pleasurable scent many flowers give off. According to a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, pleasant scents, such as those found in fragrant flowers, may help reduce stress levels.
