Montreal: Mosaiculture show celebrates artistry and optimism
Meet the Mosaiculture, a happy collision of horticulture and sculpture. Fifty mosaicultures, each one at least 80% vegetation, celebrate the "Land of Hope" theme for Mosaicultures Internationales Montreal 2013. Twenty countries, including the U.S., Canada, England, France and Uganda, are participating in the show, which was born in Montreal in 2000 and comes to life every three years. The show continues until Sept. 29. Info at Mosaicultures Internationales Montreal 2013. Two-day adult admission to the 185-acre garden costs about $28.

This beautiful mosaiculture grew out of the story of a young woman who died trying to rescue a red crown crane at the Yancheng Nature Reserve. The red crown crane is endangered.
