We inhaled dinner. Left Ashley (who is allergic to tulips, and with this year's theme being Holland, we knew there would be a lot of tulips) at home, and hightailed it to Philadelphia.
Many people attend the Philadelphia Flower Show for the flowers. For Don, it was the bicycles. In the past he has created a calendar with images of the bicycles of Disney; another year it was bicycles from World War II; I joked next year could be bicycles of the Philadelphia Flower Show.
There seemed to be more bicycles than flowers. Well, not quite.

|The tulip created in honor of Philadelphia|
|This bike IS as heavy as it looks|
|Blue tulips created by dipping them in blue dye, not grown that way|
|I broke my streak of taking pictures without other people in it|
|I've seen carved pumpkins before, but not carved watermelons,|
cantaloupes, and butternut squash
|Floral displays inspired by famous paintings|
|Miniature art -- hard to shoot through the glass|
|Non-tulip displays were rare|
