Philadelphia Flower Show 2009 - IV
I thought that today might be the last day for flower show pictures, but there will probably be another day after this one.
Today I have a few odds and ends that I just like. On the right is one of the "hats." It actually looks very much like an actual hat from the 1930s, decorated with the pheasant feathers.
The next one is back to the entrance where the formal Italian theme was the most obvious. There was an opera singer performing most of the time. One was this man, and there was also a woman.
Now we will go from the grandiose to the miniature. This was one of a class of gardens that had small buildings and sometimes figures included in them. This one did not win a prize, probably because it only has a few kinds of plant material, and the building seems too large for the composition.
Next up is a display with a reflecting pool. I got lucky and got a pretty good picture of the reflection. This isn't perhaps spectacular on its own, but I'm trying to show a selection of some of the variety today.
Finally for this batch I will just show you a variety of Hosta. This one is just called "June." I'm hoping that I can find this one to buy for my garden.
