A Day at the Philadelphia Flower Show

Seemingly everybody has a “bucket list” these days. The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) Philadelphia Flower Show was on the bucket list for myself and my Mom, Barb. We’ve been to some world-famous gardens in the UK – Sissinghurst and Gertrude Jekyll’s home garden, and we attended the flower show of all flower shows, The Chelsea Flower Show (London). Others include Butchart Gardens in B.C., the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Garden in Seal Harbor, Maine, the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch and the San Francisco Botanical Garden.

So in March of 2020 we flew to PA to attend the longest-running flower show in the U.S. The following collection of photos is just a small representation of all the fabulous exhibits and plants we saw within the Philadelphia Convention Center. Please enjoy!
