Philadelphia Flower Show - Springtime in Paris

This year the theme of the Philadelphia Flower show was springtime in Paris - how perfect is that?! It was gorgeous (I mean, it's spectacular every year - just imagine a giant convention center full of flowers): there were can-can dancers, flower arrangements, pressed flower compositions, tiny miniature scenes of Paris, and of course, rows and rows of sale booths.
Series of compositions called From Trash to Treasure
 (or something along those lines - double click on the picture for more detail - so cool!)
This chest and the Monet are actually made out of pressed flowers!!
Heading home
After we saw all the flowers, we bought some strawberries, a "frosty cherry" violet, a beautiful planter and some cut flowers too!
