This weekend my family and I took a trip to the Philadelphia Flower Show. I know so many people who go every year but we have never been. After parking and braving the whipping winds that seemed to intensify around every corner, we arrived at the Philadelphia Convention Center. As I was walking into the main exhibit area I was immediately in awe of the colorful compositions of flowers, the contrast of textures and the overlapping arrangements of plants. It was like living art. Each exhibit had a theme, title, list of media...hmmmm.. just like artwork found in a museum. I was struck by the interactive nature of the exhibits and clear intentions of each artist. I starting taking pictures and I quickly felt like I couldn’t capture it all.
