2010 Philadelphia Flower Show "South Africa"

I hope everyone is enjoying the flower show. This blog is mainly a NYC one but if I should travel and see something interesting elsewhere,I feel the need to share with everyone. We will be back in NYC very soon, I promise!! I am leaving the best for last by the way so it's only going to get better, if that is possible you say - but it is !!!

Exploration South Africa
Working with design colleagues from South Africa, the American Institute of Floral Designers (AIFD) provides a tangible artistic presentation of the Zulu culture. Hand-thatched huts, live drummers, a chandelier of floral birds, and sculpted life-size lion and giraffe provide an enchanting entry to a walk-through display that invites visitors to inspect tribal headdresses and masks that depict the vivid colors and patterns found among the native people.
