This past Wednesday, the hubby and I went to the Philadelphia International Flower Show 2011. It was such a nice time. The show was amazing and so inspirational. Honestly, I am not a gardener. I have no idea what half the flowers were let alone if they are shade plants, full sun or partial sun whatev, but we came away with a ton of ideas and that's exactly the reason why we went. That and some much needed alone time. It was a perfect day.
Nothing says Paris like the Eiffel Tower. This is unbelievable vision that greets you once walked into the Philadelphia Convention Center. The lower tier of the tower that could be seen from everywhere in the center. There was even a light show. Ooh La La!
Bushels of lavender greeted you when you walked in. Oh the smell was heavenly.
Gargoyles and something - I don't really know? A bear perhaps? All made from succulents
An amazing water feature.. notice the fountain way down yonder. It flowed down the middle of the brickwork and funneled back around again to the fountain. So cool.
Vibrant tulips. There were literally hundreds of thousands at the exhibit.
The hubby and I. I hate his hair. Hate. Don't even get me started.
An amazing, and I mean AMAZING outdoor space from EP Henry
I want this - I mean really want this. Ooh honey I'll let you grow your hair out if you please build me this.
I even loved the planters, solar lights and the lambs ear in each corner. Wow, look at me - I knew a plant.
It was all just gorgeous. Killer parties could be had in this space
I will also be willing to have this gorgeous iron gazebo, just in case the above is not in our budget.
Another view of the "Eiffel Tower"
I love the pop of colors with this display and am now obsessed with finding yellow urns for my doorway.
Of course there was a ton (and I mean a ton) of vendors. Look at these gorgeous antique looking thingies I purchased. Anyone know what these are called? Inside is glass to hold a candle.
I have no clue, I am just calling them mine. :-)
Bonne fin de semaine!
Happy Weekend everyone!
