The 2014 Philadelphia Flower Show

See the largest annual indoor flower show
in the world, & the premier horticultural
display garden in the country - Longwood Gardens &
40 Downton Abbey costumes on display at Winterthur

March 5-6 (Wed.-Thurs.)

The theme for the 184th PHS Philadelphia Flower Show is "ART-iculture," celebrating everyone from Michelangelo to Monet, Picasso to Pollack, and da Vinci to Dali. For more details, visit Most people come with me to see the Flower Show, but almost everyone enjoys Longwood Gardens even more. It is so peaceful and relaxing, after the bustle of downtown Philly. We will spend less time at Longwood Gardens this year, and visit Winterthur which will have 40 Downton Abbey costumes on display starting March 1st. Each year we order mushrooms (lots of them), and you can do that once again in 2014.
