Philadelphia Flower Show 2009 - V


This will be the last day to focus on the flower show because other things are showing up that I also want to share. Below is a collage of three rather odd looking plants, balanced on the bottom by some colorful and common spring flowers



Next is a dining room that was part of a group of displays of three rooms each on the theme of Italian Villas. I just liked the way the colors and shapes worked in this one.



One of the things I like about the big shows is how they bring whole landscapes indoors and take you to different places. Here is an Irish cottage.



Although there are a whole lot more succulents that I want to show you there may be some future chances to sneak some of those in, so I will close with a sculpture that everyone thought was pretty strange. Are these evil fairies, or just plain ugly? It was certain that anyone who saw them had an opinion! Happy Flower Show 2009.

Those three fairies are scary.

The flowers in this post are very interesting. I like the unusual ones the most. I think I agree that the fairies are a little scary, but I kind of like that.

Hi MJ- thanks for stopping by.

Solomon- Yes, they certainly caught everyone's attention. Sort of hark back to how fairies were perceived before everything became Disneyesque.

Ratty- I'm always fascinated by the unusual flowers too. Of course, I guess "unusual" only means what we are not accustomed to. With the blog world we get to see things from all corner of the globe!
