Amazing Photography - Philadelphia Flower Show 2013
What a sight… I took the girls plus Jessica, her son and Milena from the office on a road trip to the Philadelphia Flower Show. The show was named ‘brilliant’ and the subject was Great Britain. It was spectacular, we walked through the ‘palace gates’ to a wonderland of roses surrounding a huge model of Big Ben.  There were four award winning ‘crowns’ made out of flowers and dresses created from flowers, lichen and moss. The orchid garden is always jaw dropping and the spring gardens with an array of flowering bulbs and cherry trees reminded us that spring will soon be here!The Beatles were featured in several displays. Peter Rabbit, Alice in Wonderland and a Harry Potter magical kitchen garden caught the girl’s interest.  Children from all over the country had submitted pressed flower arrangements of a crown and they were on display with rosettes for the judges favorites.  On the far side of the show suppliers were set up and the girls were introduced to terrariums and seemed very interested in creating their own. We bought some do it youself kits and will keep you posted on our progress.You can see it too!  The Flower Show goes until the end of this weekend.  It’s worth the trip.
