On April 3, 2014, the Edison & Ford Winter Estates shared the highlights of "Art in Bloom." The event will be held on Sunday, April 6 at The Estates in Fort Myers, Fla.
"'Art in Bloom' is a project of the Edison & Ford Winter Estates and the Fort Myers-Lee County Garden Council. The project combines art pieces with floral designs." - Edison Ford
According to Edison Ford the artwork created by this talented group of artists has previously been on display and in programs at The Estates.
The art is used as an inspiration for members of the Garden Council and staff of Edison Ford, and they design their own pieces of art using plant materials.
Also on April 6, "Art in Bloom" will honor Berne Davis. She celebrated her 100th birthday on March 19, and in honor of her there will be a tree planting ceremony in the Edison Ford Gardens at 4 p.m.
Davis is a contributor to the Edison Moonlight Garden restoration, has been a longtime member of the Periwinkle Garden Club, along with Mina Edison, Thomas Edison’s wife.
Artwork from contributing artists will be available for purchase and a Tea Tent will serve Edison Ford Tea, a special blend of tea made for the Edison & Ford Winter Estates. Visitors will also have the opportunity to vote on their favorite piece.
Future events coming up for the rest of April at Edison Ford include "50 Years of Ford Mustang," "Art in the Garden," "Rhythm on the River" and others.
