There are several events here in Cambria this weekend that should be of great interest to gardeners and appreciators of the beauty of flowers. At the annual wildflower show in the Vet’s Hall at 1000 Main Street, you’ll find hundreds of freshly picked wildflowers for viewing and smelling (if you dare). Wildflowers are picked before the event from the Monterey County line to the Morro Bay Estuary and from the coastal bluffs to the Santa Lucia Mountains. If you’ve ever wondered what the names of wildflowers are, this is the perfect event for you. Noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, and 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. Cost is $3.00.
The 18th annual Faerie Festival, with storytelling with Susan Pendergast, crafts, food, and music is taking place at Heart’s Ease Herb Shop and Gardens at 4101 Burton Drive. Time 11:00-2:00 on Saturday, April 28. Free.
Across the street from Heart’s Ease, on Saturday, April 28, there will be a plant sale at the Cambria Historical Museum on Burton Street. You’ll see maypole dancing at 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00 p.m. and you can buy root beer floats to refresh you.
If you still have energy, take a walk on the Fiscalini Ranch trails overlooking the ocean and breathe the spring air. Delicious!
