This past Friday, on the 7th, Brian took me down to the annual Philadelphia Flower Show at the Convention center. I saw that Rachael Ray was going to make an appearance (at a flower show, thought that was interesting as she is known as a cook), and I wanted to see her. We had gotten tickets to see her show in NYC last fall, but couldn’t make it up there for the taping.
We drove in and parked in a nearby garage(there were cheaper ones, now we know). It was a chilly kind of day, nothing like last year when I wore a sweater! My sinuses had been in an uproar and my legs were aching, but I was determined to see all I could.
I really like the lighting effects too! The stage was in this area where Rachael would sit and chat with Action News meteorologist Melissa Magee.
Brian was holding the camera over his head to take these shots!
Some of my favorite displays:
A pink tree!
Spheres casting interesting shadows! I like to not use the flash when I can.
Pretty combo of rose buds and pussywillow
Path made out of recycled newspapers!
Inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s art…a bowl!
A first prize winner
Pressed flowers and leaves Blue Ribbon winner inspired by Monet. So amazing!
Famous artists in caricature! Fun! Van Gogh, Dali, Warhol and Kahlo.
We went over to one of my favorite places in Philly to visit and eat and sat next to a couple of ladies who had been all through the flower show. We asked if there was anything we needed to see and they said the butterfly room! So we went and it fascinating to see 100s of butterflies in one room. So many people had them sitting in their hair or on their hats.
A couple of a number of Andy Warhol’s works.
We always manage to miss things. I just wasn’t having the best day walking around. I think my sneakers are too tight and were bothering my legs. Time for some new ones.
Spring flowers too!
(0ne of my favorite shots-good one Brian!)
Next destination will be Longwood Gardens to see the orchid display!
