Philadelphia Flower Show
The Philadelphia Flower Show drew a record 48,000 people on Saturday, March 7th, 2009. All toll, 245,000 attended the week long event. “Bella Italia” with ancient Roman gardens, a Venetian canal, views from the Alps, Milan’s haute couture, and art in a Florence garden (with an Irish Blarney stone exhibit included too,) gave testament to the 3,500 volunteers’ and 68 exhibitors’ devotion to flowers and landscaping to support the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society in their 180th year’s show. Next year’s theme is “The World Gardens.” Afterward a satisfying Philly cheese steak sub “with whiz” carried us home.
