Philadelphia Flower Show 2011- Carousel 1
A major component throughout the Philadelphia Flower Show this year was carousel animals. The Springtime in Paris theme focused on the turn of the 20th Century. Think of the huge, fancy carousels with many different animals, not just horses. The unicorn was right under the Eiffel Tower.
The camel was definitely one of my favorites! It had a lot of personality, in addition to being a funny animal. I hope I got pictures of all these displays, as they were scattered throughout the show.
I didn't get as good a picture of this one. The white tail of the ostrich hogged all the light, but if you look carefully you'll see its neck and head stretching into the distance.
The lion was my least favorite, just because the wire frame wasn't filled in at the nose. I thought it was difficult to imagine the rest of the animal, since all the others were so realistic. But I like the mane. I like this lion better than the one from last year's show. See Philadelphia Flower Show 2010- Animals
There are more carousel animals that I found, but I will spread the pictures out, so there isn't photo overload on any one post.
I sure hope you are prepared for FLOWERS, and PLANTS! Get ready for a ride on the Paris Carousel!
