While Anticipating Springs’ Equinox…

Leave a comment

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
The proceeds from the Flower Show benefit programs sponsored by Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, membership is open to the public.( 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
