Every year I swear off gong to the Philadelphia Flower Show and every year I find myself buying a ticket. It’s partly optimism and partly fear of missing something. Most of the time, I am disappointed. But I have to admit this year was different. One, I finally got the idea, it’s all about the flowers. It has nothing to do with landscape design or garden design, it’s purely a display of flowers. 2010 theme (and there always is a theme) Passport To The World. Each exhibit is dedicated to a part of the world…Africa, Brazil, India, New Zealand, etc. From the pungent smell of jasmine to the knock-me-over hyacinth, on a chilly day you can’t beat it!
