2010 Philadelphia Flower Show "Polar Fantasy"

Though flowers are not normally grown in 40-below temperatures, this exhibit brings flowers to the Arctic with the warmth of the swirling lights of the Aurora Borealis.  
The display features all-white flowers encapsulated in caverns of snow and ice.  
Thousands of white dendrobium orchids behind sheets of “ice” frozen in stalagmite and stalagtite formations are combined with spherical mounds of white carnations piled high throughout the exhibit.  
As guests walk through, fiber optic cables power the swirling colorful lights in an ever-changing pattern that captures the imagination and brings warmth to the coldest point on the globe.
this was an amazing thing to see in person
the type that takes your breathe away....
Orchids are beautiful
these looked very different but as we got closer we realized......
they were covered in wax.....
are you amazed???? 


Exhibit is by Schaffer Designs of Philadelphia, Pa
