I came. I saw. I took pictures for ya'll. ;) The theme this year was New Orleans. I knew that before I went, but had forgotten by the time I got there, and thought that maybe the theme was music as there were so many trumpets, musical notes, etc. My neighbor was volunteering there this year, and was kind enough to give me one of the free tickets that she got for volunteering. :) I looked for her while I was there, but couldn't find her. It was very crowded. I did manage to find their seed store. ;) They were selling seeds from several different companies, so there was a pretty good selection and opportunity to compare prices somewhat. I restrained myself a great deal and only bought 5 packets of seed-- fuchsia, cyclamen, snapdragons, coleus "Fairway Mosaic," and cat grass. I brought an extra roll of film, thinking that *maybe* I would need it. I could have easily gone through another roll of film, and wished that I had brought more, but I'll know for next year. I actually had a hard time getting pictures of anything more than the backs of people's heads. ;)
After taking in the show, I had a little lunch at the Reading Terminal Market, which is like a farmer's market with a bunch of little restaurants. That was really crowded too! I went around noon, so no wonder. All in all, a nice little trip. :)
For those of you in the area who are interested, the flower show is going on through Sunday, March 9--tomorrow. My pics really don't begin to cover all that is there, so it's worth the trip, if you would like to see it in person.
I'm putting the best pics here, and the rest are in my photo album.
