After lunch at the Reading Terminal Market The Hubster and I went to Opening Day of the Philadelphia Flower Show at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. It was themed “Holland”. Lots and lots of tulips! One never tires of this seemingly ordinary, yet beautiful flower. And there were a sea of them! Here are some pictures I took, which do not do justice to the real thing. We had a delightful time! We both love beautiful landscapes and flowers. Neither of us has a green thumb nor the interest to garden. This is a perfect time to enjoy and admire the fruits of others’ labors and get ideas for potential work for our own garden.
The next selection of pictures were items submitted for varied judging. Each item was made solely of pressed plant materials. The depth and quality of the some of the pictures was simply breathtaking. The painstaking care of each placed piece was evident. It must have taken the artist an incredible amount of time to do each their picture.
