Let's just go through the colors at the 2019 Philadelphia Flower Show. Next up is orange.
I'll start with an interesting cactus in bloom. It's a Parodia, a genus of cactus native to South America. (Doesn't seem to fit that genus to me, but I'm no cactus expert.)
This is the winner in one of the miniature contests, the theme of which was "Light My Fire." Plant materials are a Ginger blossom, and Curly Ting-ting, a dried grass.
Next up is one of the displays from a commercial exhibit called Happy Together. It's supposed to explore relationships between plants and people. It had one section for each color with neon tubes. I'm not sure I understand this one but it sure is orange.
Tulips are always wonderful to see in early spring. They never disappoint.
And I love the variety and colors of Begonias. You may see a whole day of them.
Can't let you go without one more kind of tulip.
Finally, this is from the World Cup exhibit by Korea.
The furnace is fixed. Can't say I mind. It didn't get below 58 in the house, but it's nice to have indoor spaces be indoorsy. I finished the book I needed to read, and wrote in the morning. Didn't accomplish much else. The forecast was rain, so I didn't walk. Should have... no rain.
