How does one prepare for spring when the ground is covered in snow and the temperatures are not even flirting with the freezing mark? Well, if you are in Philadelphia, you travel to the Flower Show for an instant pick-me-up!
This more than hundred-year tradition is one of the best-timed events. In our area, the seasons stick to the calendar for the most part. This means that it snows in March (still winter) and is blazing hot in September (still summer). As much as we’re ready to move into the next season during these transitional months, Mother Nature insists we wait it out until those equinoxes arrive!
This year’s Flower Show focused on the movies, which was a perfect them for a four-year-old and a two-and-a-half-year-old. We enjoyed the beautiful displays while trying to guess the movies.
Here are some of the highlights:
What magnificent floral displays!
Themed after Cinderella’s wedding.
Here’s Elsa’s castle.
From Ratatouille. (Love the tomatoes in the floral basket!)
An Up doghouse.
Winnie-the-Pooh, of course!
Merida’s archery skills displayed.
And some other beautiful displays!
