2010 Philadelphia Flower Show "USA"

We are now arriving in USA at the flower show. I saw the first girl from far away and went crazy!! What a wonderful display. And you know there is always a yankee hat somewhere in the world!! Here are some great displays representing the United States of America...............

she looked almost real !!!

Presented by the W.B. Saul High School of Agricultural Sciences 
Philadelphia, PA 19128
Through Her Gates
The Statue of Liberty stands as a symbol to welcome all who pass through her gates. In this display, plants from around the world come together, representing the melting pot that is America. Varieties from Asia, Europe and the Americas surround the great lady, linking horticultural traditions.

I had to shoot the wonderful explanation of the exhibit....Thank you France !!

they did win the world series last are the most winning team in history..nice touch!!

this reminded me of the globe at Flushing Meadows where the US Open tennis is played 

 J. Downend Landscaping Crum Lynne, PA 19022

A Delaware Valley garden can incorporate beautiful plants from around the world in both hardy and tender forms. In this visionary scene, water cascades down a staircase of Pennsylvania bluestone into a reflecting pool, presenting the appearance of a floating walkway. 

No Passport Required

A bronze globe is draped in a backdrop of roses and amelanchier, and a limestone eagle is enveloped in snapdragons and delphinium, reminding us that we live in a horticultural melting pot of the global landscape.

eagle had to have a close up
