Bayfield's Lakeside Pavilion hosts WPR "Garden Talk"
Bayfield in Bloom Opens on the middle weekend in May with a special event at the Lakeside Pavilion featuring Wisconsin Public Radio's Garden Talk show with Larry Meiller.
(May 12, 2017)
The Bayfield spring flowering and garden festival traditionally debuts by hosting the Wisconsin Public Radio's "Garden Talk" with Larry Meiller, held live at Bayfield's Lakeside Pavilion. Accompanying the show in the pavilion are exhibits on landscaping, gardening, and natural resources. Several area orchards also feature plant sales during this opening weekend of Bayfield in Bloom.

Almost 20 gardens are expected to participate in the June 3rd for the 2017 Annual Bayfield Garden Tour. It is a self-guided walking tour with homeowners on hand to answer questions. The annual festival ends with the traditional Blessing of the Fleet celebration on June 11th.
We caught some nice weather during one Memorial Day weekend in Bayfield with a number of trees and flowers still in bloom. The Bayfield in Bloom Festival normally runs from mid-May to mid-June.
Here's a few photos from our walking around town looking at various gardens and flowering trees and shrubs.

Behind this apple tree is an old apple cellar used by one of the early apple orchards to store their crop after picking. It is near the Iron Bridge Hiking Trail and creek.
