Philadelphia Flower Show 2019 - Red or Bright Pink

Just pretty pictures from the 2019 Philadelphia Flower Show today. I'm tired, and need to do an easy post. Even though red and pink aren't my favorites, I love bold color, so they get to participate. I'll just tell you the plant or exhibit. Many of them I don't know the exact variety anyway.

This is a Clivia, relative of the Amaryllis.

Next up is a portion of one of the World Cup displays, from the Czech Republic.

I loved these tulips!

And the Croton, much seen as a tropical house plant. But it really has spectacular leaves.

Next we have a Cyclamen, but this is particularly nice because of the large and ruffled petals.

More red tulips, pure red this time.

And finally, this is beginning to fade into pastels, but I'm sticking it in this group anyway. This is part of the World Cup display from Finland. Notice the marshmallows!

In other news: I tightened up and added to "Screaming Monkeys," and cleaned up the previously written "Wish You Were Here." Tomorrow, I'll be back to making notes from the next tape. I walked 5 miles, did shopping and errands, and went to bell practice. The furnace is on the fritz, and it's not going to be a cheap fix. Sigh. I'm thinking bed and a book soon.

I'm starting to feel slightly guilty at not bringing you local joys, but it's March. Flower show pictures are much better for a while. Color!
