Philadelphia Flower Show 2011- Carousel 2
The carousel motif was carried through the 2011 Philadelphia Flower Show (Springtime in Paris). Late in the day, we stumbled upon the dolphin.
The last three animals formed the center of the stage. You can see the carousel stage in the distance under the Eiffel Tower picture at Welcome to Paris.
The fact that they were so close together made it more difficult to separate out the pictures, but here is the rabbit. It's startling color made it stand out clearly.
I thought the bee was confusing. It's eyes look more like a fly to me, but it has an impressive stinger, so I think it must be a bee.
The final animal on the stage was a snail. I like it quite a lot, except I wanted the head to be filled in more.
The dancers and other performers had to deal with that very small stage! Note the can-can dancers in the post mentioned earlier.
So, now we've toured the carousel... tomorrow it will be time to see some flowers!
