My aunt and I went to the Philadelphia International Flower Show yesterday, and all I can say is WOW! The theme was "Springtime in Paris" and it made me want to jump on a plane and go there now. Welcoming you into the show was a nearly life-size replica of the base of the Eiffel Tower. This picture doesn't do it justice, but it was incredible to see.
There were enormous gardens and landscapes set up, all within the theme of the show with sculptures and lighting.
There were even whole rooms decorated with flower arrangements.
And right in the middle was a carousel that looked like something right out of the Rose Bowl parade. One of the animals was a rabbit! A homage to it being the year of the rabbit perhaps?
If you ever have the chance, you should go someday. It is absolutely worth the trip!
Here are some of my favorite close ups...
