Brilliant! Exhibits from the Philly Flower Show

Behind the “Brilliant” of the Philadelphia Flower Show are again the many creative exhibitors who make the whole event so intensely interesting every year. My personal favorite has to be “Hockney’s Haven” from the Chester County Art Association. “Hockney’s Haven” was entered in the “Garden Gates” category and the cheerful color of its simple fence of branches is quite magical. Bravo! I award you the Fuchsias in the City Medal of Horticulture. Ha ha. More of the Flower Show’s exhibitors are coming in the next blog as well.
