Spring in Niagara
Niagara - we miss you! We continue to stay home to help stop the spread, and while we can't make our regular trips out and about, Destination Niagara has compiled some great ideas from local businesses to help make this time a little easier.
May means spring flowers and since we are all doing our part by staying indoors, why not brighten up your space with some beautiful greenery and florals? Many businesses are hurting right now and local greenhouses that rely on Easter and Mother's Day sales have taken quite a big hit. We believe a little colour goes a long way and flowers can be a great way to spread some happiness and love.
Many greenhouses, farmers, and local businesses are finding creative ways to remain open during uncertain times and if you're looking for a little pick-me-up or a special gift then look no further!
