Paris in the Spring

Last night I attended the Philadelphia International Flower Show!  This was the second time I attended the show.  Last year I went alone, but this year I went with my co-workers.  The theme for the Flower Show this year was Paris in the Spring.  The show was amazing and my olfactory bulbs were overloaded.  There were so many things to see and smell.  There were thousands and thousands of flowers, especially my favorites, tulips and orchids!  There were giant butterflies, fish, horses, lions, and ostriches all made out of flowers.  It was awesome.  I took plenty of photos, but I will only share a few of my favorites with you.

This is what a bud looks like before it blooms and looks like the flower below. 
These are my new favorite flowers
This was one of my favorite orchids.  I love the little pouch
I have never seen these curled edge tulips before. 

I know I posted a lot of photos, but I had a lot of favorites.

If you like all those, then you will love this one!

I don't know the name of the flower, but it was very bright, unusual, and unique.  Thats probably why I chose it as my photo of the day.

Wow. Such breathtaking images. I wouldn't have been able to choose, either. I love the greens and oranges. So wonderful.
