Last Thursday hub and I attended the Philadelphia Flower Show.  We left our home around 10:00 a.m. and headed down to the Philadelphia Convention Center.

As we got off the exit, the traffic was unbearable.  We were escorted into a very tight parking lot, paying $25.00 for a spot and barely able to fit our pick-up truck in.  

People were scurrying about, almost running into the Convention Center to beat out the next guy.  The Convention Center itself is a very nice building, and it was decorated beautifully.

The displays were quite gorgeous..the theme was Springtime in Paris..unfortunately, the mobs of people made it almost impossible to appreciate anything.  I am not one for crowds, and this was my first time at the show, so I sucked it up and ventured through.  I did not bring my regular camera, so relied on my cell phone camera...most of the shots were blurry, so not worth posting.

Most of the displays were on one complete end and in the middle of the Center, and were comprised of everything from woodland tree displays, shrub displays, beautiful architecture, displays made by school children who won awards, perennials, annuals, succulents, etc..on the other end of the Center were people selling their wares.

It took us about two hours to tour and that was all I could take..if it were not for the pushy, nasty people it would have been rated high in my book...and then the car ride home.

Our next venture into the city is April 14 to see The 39 Steps and have dinner afterward, this time we are staying put at a hotel.happy
