Philadelphia Flower Show

Explore America Flower Show - Shades of Sarah

Earlier this month (during our March heatwave actually) I attended annual Philadelphia Flower Show. It’s a big local event hosted by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. This year’s theme was Explore America, in honor of the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary. I’m not the most outdoorsy person, but I love flowers and it’s absolutely crazy what people can do with plants.

This cool buffalo greeted people at the entrance! Adorable, right?

Because Philadelphia, obviously.

This awesome floral chandelier was one of my favorites!

Now this is a gardening hat (sorry, such a bad pun)!

Tulips flower show - Shades of Sarah

Tulips are my favorite.

Orchid flower show - Shades of Sarah

This orchid was stunning.

The Flower Show was definitely a good experience, but since tickets are on the pricey side, I’m not sure I can make this an annual tradition (even this year, my friend and I got free admission through another friend). I can also see how I would appreciate the warm and colorful environment even more if we were in the middle of a real winter! Either way, it was a great way to spend an evening after work — sometimes I forget how nice it is to just walk and talk. (Speaking of which, wear comfy shoes!)
