How many Parisian landmarks can you see in the hay wagon? This was part of the Tour de France display…
I have lots more photos to share. Wish I had more time at the show, but then I would have thousands of photos! The photo below is also part of the display…Tour de France…the bicycle is “hitched up” to the hay wagon full of Paris landmarks.
- Tour de France – Hay wagon…
Handmade floral gate enclosing a pond garden
This gate must have taken hours, days or weeks to construct. It was an outstanding ornate organic gate with a Parisian feel to it.
Part of Paris Underground display...
Much of the Paris Underground display was very dark…not in color or hue, but in feel. I don’t think it was meant to be pretty, more artistic and real.
Part of the display had a heavy ceiling to make it feel like the display was indeed underground.
The lights to pinpoint the floral diplays and art, felt like a brightness in the middle of urban plight or the dark tunnels of Paris.
Just my take on this display. It was a bit odd to encounter this as one of the first diplays happened upon when enterring the show…
Organic-filled Lion - Carousel Animal at Philadelphia Flower Show 2011
These carousel animals surrounded the Eiffel Tower in their own flower beds.
The animals were presented by Valley Forge Florist of Wayne, Pennsylvania. They need to be given credit because these creatures were wonderful and HUGE!
Unicorn Carousel Animal
Surprisingly, these carousel animals diplayed their armature. I always thought topieries like these should cover their metal support. It felt a little like someone’s slip was showing! Maybe it was just me…

Carousel Rabbit at Philadelphia Flower Show 2011
This rabbit was on a gimungous rotating carousel with a snail and a bee.
I collect rabbits. I have zillions all over the garden. I like them, but children love to “find” all of them.
- Windowbox display at the Philadelphia Flower Show 2011
I’ll sign off with a photo of a special windowbox display. These were amazing! Don’t know if my boxes or the house for that matter, would hold them up!
Some had small trees in them or pots and ornaments…unbelievable. My boxes are going to get crazier…!
Real spring…not just the date, but temperatures and warm sun and NO white stuff will be here soon…
I’m hearing the birds…and a few brave bulbs are peaking up…!
Take a walk and listen to the birds singing about spring…
