21 Billion Blooms in 2010
Victoria, B.C. – The total number of blooms
counted in the Annual Greater Victoria Flower Count was 21,691,666,716. Oak Bay was the leading Municipality with over 14 billion blooms followed by Victoria with
almost 5 billion blooms. The winning class was Ms L Westby’s class from
Willows Elementary and they win a trip to Butchart Gardens.
Greater Victoria is one of the
best places on the planet to live work and play. The annual flower count is a testament
to the wonderful climate and community spirit. Truly a gold medal performance
by Mother Nature this year!
The Greater Victoria Flower Count is a light-hearted event
meant to promote Victoria as an attractive shoulder-season holiday destination.
Citizens across the municipality are invited to count their blossoms and report
