Since we moved to New Jersey we are within an hour of both New York and Philadelphia which means I was able to attend the media day at the Philadelphia Flower Show! It was really a delight and the gardens were amazing – this year is was all about Britain and the slug was Brilliant which is very fitting for the event.
The entrance really set the stage for the show:
The show gardens were, of course, spectacular and covered everything from Cricket, to Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes and royalty themes. Here was a royal throne made with dark red rose blossoms:
There were vendors and suppliers too and this beautiful display of seeds caught my eye from the Hudson Valley Seed Company. The packets are carefully designed to open from the back by removing a sticker. Inside there are the seeds plus a little script story about the seeds. A great little company and great images.
