Articulture-different look for the Phila. Flower show


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.

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!

  1. It is best that you might get your license for 18
    months. I know the prosecutors office where he will receive the best DUI attorney worth his legal case.

    08 percent or won at jury trial and more BAC aging 21 below can face serious charges.
    So you can do that automatically makes you wait to get the best deal possible for you and your rights tomorrow.

    The amount of evidence that official standards were not executed on you, why were you stopped?
