The 2017 Philadelphia Flower Show!
It has been a strange winter and it looks like spring is going to be just as weird. February was almost spring like and March has roared in with a blizzard for some and hurricane force winds for others. We’re getting battered here at the shore but, we’re kind of used to that and there’s no shoveling involved.
So, today seems like the perfect day to share our trip to the Philadelphia Flower Show. I took a few (*ahem* maybe 50) pictures to show you.
Let’s start at the entrance…
The theme this year was ‘Holland’ and now I want to go there! They didn’t scrimp on tulips, that’s for sure, there were 30,000 of them! But, so much more…
Bicycles are the primary mode of transportation in Holland and they were everywhere in the most ingenious ways!
I love the shadows!
Holland had the first bike share program, which we see in every big city these days, and their bicycles were white. I doubt they ever envisioned them in such a display but, I’m so glad someone did. Here’s one more…
I always enjoy the vignettes. There are different categories, like ‘Table Settings’ and ‘Entryways’, etc. Here are a few of my faves…
My favorite entryway.
The next two photos are so ingenious and beautifully executed. They are mosaics made of real flowers. I LOVE them!
These hanging bottles on the left are so pretty…and at the bottom of the photo, you can see the throngs of people who were there opening day! It was quite crowded and I’m sure it will be until it closes on Saturday the 16th! So get over there if you can, you won’t regret it!
You have to have windmills at a Holland themed show! Aren’t they gorgeous!?
That’s enough beauty for one post but, be sure to check the Zero to 60 Facebook page this week for even more photos of this amazing show.
And, I want to thank FTD for giving me the opportunity to share my visit to the 2017 Philadelphia Flower Show with all of you! Which display was your favorite? Please share in the comments!
