My husband and I journeyed to the historic Philadelphia Flower Show yesterday. This year's theme was Bella Italia and while I was a bit afraid it might be a little over the top, it wasn't and was worth the trip. Here's a few pictures of what we saw:
At the entrance - I'm thinking this might look good on my dining room table.
The Discover Ireland display - I would love to visit Ireland and stay in a cottage like this.
Venice inside the Convention Center.
In addition, there was a large marketplace with a huge variety of plants, garden accessories, prints and any thing else floral related that you could think of.
I enjoyed spending the evening with my husband. Of course our trip home was not without incident - while walking through the underground mall from the convention center to the train, there was a bit of police activity with one young man on the floor waiting for an ambulance and several young men handcuffed and kneeling against a wall. Ah, Philly - cradle of the constitution and land of the nice guys!
