There is no better time to attend a festival dedicated to flowers than spring. One of the most unique flower festivals staged in Georgia is The Flower Fantasy at Paneola – Dreams.
This annual event will take place at Paneola Farms situated close to Ft. Valley. The dates of 2023 edition of the festival are April 22-23.
The Magnolia Garden Club sponsors the event. Proceeds will benefit the Garden Club of Georgia Scholarship Fund.
The centerpiece of this special event is a circa 1865 home adorned with some of the most unique floral arrangements you will ever see. Each room has a different theme that boggles the mind.
If that is not enough, you must tour the gorgeous grounds surrounding the house. The highlights of your leisurely stroll are visits to a number of gardens, full of a wide variety of flowers that attract butterflies, hummingbirds and other wildlife.
Two of the presentations scheduled for this year’s event should be of interest to backyard wildlife enthusiasts. Mary Ann Johnson from Growing Old will talk about the benefits of pollinators, what to plant in your garden, and how to care for them. This presentation will take place Saturday at 2 pm.
I have the honor of speaking Sunday at 2pm. The name of the presentation is Attracting Hummingbirds—A Recipe for Success.
