2009 Philadelphia Flower Show-part 3



The 2009 Philadelphia Flower Show-part 3





Finally the end of the big event !!!
Below are smaller exhibits..many that were in competition.
Some of the exhibits came under some internet criticism..
I believe because they weren't "garden related".
BUT with a show this large...who cares !
Also below are some of the 140 venders...you name it... they had it!

Didn't buy any plants BUT couldn't leave without bringing SOMETHING home !
This little metal angel should do nicely hanging somewhere in the garden.

  1. What a wonderful show! I think I would have needed a van to take home several plants and the concrete containers! Your angel is perfect! gail

  2. Hi Patsi, I love the bonsai photo (#11) simple yet stunning! Great purchase with the angel...I bought a few bulbs and also scored a tree peony for $20!! May take a few years to bloom but much better than paying $99 or more! I added your link on my post, hope that's ok.

  4. Patsi .. I'm so damn jealous of this garden show ! Another year in Kingston NOT having a show .. there is a HUGE one in Toronto but I just can't take the energy with the drive there and back and 3 acres of displays .. it would kill me because I would want to see every bit of it ... loved seeing your adventures though !
    What is the best idea you took away from it all ?

  7. Gail,
    Also loved the concrete containers. I think some you can make.

    Lynn,
    It was hard not to buy any plants...think I'll wait to go to Pope's for my perennials.

    Cameron,
    Glad you enjoyed my VERY long set of posts.

    Joy,
    Believe it or not...didn't get any ideas. I'm always looking for them but this show was for the large stately gardens.

    Donna,
    I tried to give a good sampling of the whole event.

    Joey,
    Would love to see Yardley. Always enjoy something different...makes life interesting.

  8. Patsi I don't know how you restrained yourself to just one purchase. Love your pics. What a great flower show. I am amazed that more people weren't there it did not seem crowded.

  9. Wow what a great show! We had our local one this weekend and it was a flop. Nothing even remotely worth seeing and we had to pay to get in. Basically it was advertising for stuff. I would love to see this one!
