Philadelphia Flower Show

Spring is coming! I can feel it. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the two feet of snow on our property is finally melting away. To get ready for the new season, I convinced Jim to head into center city with me for the Philadelphia Flower Show on Friday night. Loved it! Picked up some great seeds, artwork from a favorite artist, and some gorgeous pussy willow branches. Loved seeing all the vendors and their crafts, and with all the pamphlets and business cards I picked up, I look forward to exploring what else they have to offer. 

Only took a few photos, but I think they're pretty enough to put you in the mood for sunny days ahead!

Loved the display by Terrain, and look forward to visiting their location when I find some time in the coming weeks.

Lovely tulips

I really loved this prize-winning floral arrangement. Nice and exotic!

Makes you want to sit out in the backyard, no?

An interesting display of flowers in colored water, all suspended by wires from the ceiling.  Really beautiful in person.

Looking forward to our daffodils, azaleas, and forsythias coming into bloom...

Such pretty colors.

In addition to all the gorgeous blooms, everything smelled wonderful! The hyacinths were delicious!

Always stunned by the beauty of a pure white phalaenopsis

Hello spring! I'm waiting for you :)
