Philadelphia Flower Show

If you are in the mood to see some amaz­ing flo­ral design, head out to the 2010 Philadel­phia Flower Show. I think this is the biggest in the Unit­ed States and am hap­py to see it is still going on. The show runs through this Sun­day — March 7.  Hours vary by day — best view­ing hours are after 4 p.m. each day.  Tick­et prices vary by day and age group. Pur­chase tick­ets in advance or at the door to the flower show. If you go, make sure you wear com­fy shoes and lay­ers and take along your cam­era and a bag to haul away the great stuff you will most like­ly pur­chase in the shop­ping area. 
What to expect? Lots of dis­plays, exhibits, work­shops, shop­ping, food, wine tast­ing and peo­ple! Each year, many pro­fes­sion­al land­scap­ers, florists, and hor­ti­cul­tur­al and edu­ca­tion­al orga­ni­za­tions cre­ate gar­den exhibits and flo­ral dis­plays at the show and com­pete for many awards, includ­ing the “Best in Show” in each cat­e­go­ry. Check out the oth­er flower show attrac­tions like free gar­den work­shops.
