There were other Philadelphia Flower Show major exhibits I haven't shown you yet that were inspired by movies, without trying to duplicate the set. These three seemed creative.
The Tourism Council of Ireland presented this one with the tagline, "Who needs fifty shades of gray when you can have forty shades of green?"
This display took a completely different tack on "Celebrate the Movies." It was designed by the Camden, New Jersey, Children's Garden. It was called Showtime New Jersey and featured fruits and vegetables that are grown at the Camden garden. The space was decorated with movie memorabilia from New Jersey actors, writers, etc. The fence pickets were painted by children and then decorated with info about such New Jersey people as Bruce Willis, Danny DeVito, Kelly Ripa, and more. After the show the fence was moved to the real garden.
One section was filled with dinosaurs and monsters made of plant materials. By kids, I'm sure. Very fun.
This next one was a beautiful and colorful display of blooming spring bulbs called "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," based on Mary Poppins. This was also an international entry from Jacques Armand International, of Middlesex, UK. They wanted to recreate "the magic of a spring day in an English Park." It was one of the most colorful gardens, and since I love spring bulbs, I liked it a lot.
Taxes are done. Have to work both jobs tomorrow and Friday, so I'm thinking bed really soon.
