Alright here it is, 28 day’s till the Spring Equinox and spring is official declared. Many have stated that “Happiness is a state of mind”, so in order to achieve that I looked within our own Reading Eagle and saw that the Philadelphia Flower Show is March 2 – March 10th 2013. I really need to look at my day planner more often. That means two full weekends this year, I can hardy contain my beating heart. Flowers!
The theme is “Brilliant” – stated to “be a celebration of the contemporary culture, design, gardens and landscapes of Great Britain”. Joy, oh joy, when I was across the “pond” I saw amazing gardens filled with a grand assortment of flowers and shrubs and scents’ that were absolutely out of this world.
How to get to the Philadelphia Flower Show: drive, carpool, train and bus day trip (Boscov offers ride & ticket deals)…now to pick a day. The Philadelphia Flower Show is offering something new this year “Pre-Show Sneak Peek”
tickets, for more information http://www.theflowershow.com.
The proceeds from the Flower Show benefit programs sponsored by Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, membership is open to the public.(http://phsonline.org) There are even volunteer opportunities, something to think about for next year.
Take note pad, pen, camera along with a folding carry bag for purchases and wear comfortable shoes. Some of the best garden suppliers are there selling their wears and offering to ship. I can’t wait to see the wonderful ideas for planters, new color and plant combinations…..yes, happiness is a state of mind! Until later, El
