Ah, spring!

Yes, we are getting closer to the official start of spring but at the Philadelphia Convention Center, spring is already there. I went to the Philadelphia Flower Show today and loved seeing all the beautiful flowers. This was at the entrance of the show. The theme was Springtime in Paris. And it was lovely. I'm going to post a few of the pictures that I took (there were over 150!) so I hope you can sit back and imagine the springtime magic.

Flowers everywhere. 
These were both such a creative way to use stuff and lighting to create a scene. 
For my Celtic readers.
Anyone care to take a sail. 
Such a welcoming doorway
Flowers of every kind. 
A Paris flower stall. 
Love the blue and yellow
Your living room...
Love this French rooster
Several absolutely fabulous ironwork. 
Lovely outdoor setting 
Do your window boxes look like this?
One of my favorites - Gerbera Daisies. 
Wonderful front porch. 
The marriage of fashion and flowers
And the urban scene. 
I hope your enjoyed the view. I tried to give you just a taste of what I saw.
Now the second sign of spring is the beginning of daylight saving time. It was hard to get up this morning but just peachy to have the sun go down an hour later. I believe the sun set at 7:10. Love that so much.

Now that I'm home I really hope to get back to the baby quilt tonight. I wonder how many more times I will be saying that. No baby news just yet but should hear something by the end of this week. So exciting for everyone!
