The annual Philadelphia Flower Show was one of the unexpectedly better events held at the city convention center. The event showcases a great variety of plants and decor. A visit is certainly warranted. Below are some macros of different flowers and the butterfly habitat for a few dollars more! When you first walk towards the exhibition hall from the front, different smaller classrooms are open with smaller exhibitors showcasing their wares. Then as you enter the main exhibition hall, you will notice huge decorations made of plants that carve many paths into the hall. As with most popular events, prepare to navigate through crowds. As you make your way to the back of the hall, you will see smaller window displays of pretty flower arrangements. If you decide to go left first, you will find lines and lines of different colored versions of the same plants including cacti and insect-trap species. Past all the exhibits, there is a large vendor area selling everything needed to enjoy the hobby, from bulbs to lawn mowers and actual flowers. All of the plants were in perfect condition which makes you wonder exactly how much resources and what techniques were used to raise these plants just for this show. The butterfly habitat was in a small room filled with nets and hundreds or thousands of butterflies that land on the nets and on you! It is worth the few extra dollars to enter and interact with these creatures. The bonus is there being a free wine tasting event at the event so bottoms up. Many different popular and local wine brands showcase their wares in this little section towards the back of the convention center. Be sure to look at the schedule to find it since it is only open for two hours. Again, this is a free event, after paying for the admission of course, which is great for an alcohol tasting event.
