Philly was Pretty in Pink

One thing was evident at the Philadelphia Flower Show this year...
exhibitors were in love with pink!

Carpets of pink carnations...roses in all different shades; orchids in soft shell pinks to deep burgundies...

Pink on the walls....

This crazy pink fur Dr. Seuss-like thingy....with flowers on it no less!

A giant installation composed of pink ginger, heather, amaryllis, pink wire, pink flooring...

You could even look at the world through rose-colored glass if you were so inclined...

I loved this beautiful antique dresser filled with pink blooms.

Even the usually red Anthurum got in on the pink act...

Springtime in Paris at the Philly Flower Show

Spring was bustin' out all over last weekend, on the first day of the fantastic
Philadelphia Flower Show!
With a theme of Springtime in Paris, a warm welcome was extended from the moment you stepped in from the wet and blustery Philly day outside.

I could have used this Eiffel Tower Umbrella!
And the chic beret would have been a jaunty touch to a chilly day.

I think this "jolie chapeau" is more up my alley, really...

These tiny Can-Can ladies were installed in a miniature vignette. Adorable!

And this interpretation of a flower market in Paris is spot-on.
The scent was intoxicating! What is France if not a flower-loving country?

You couldn't swing un chat without seeing an Eiffel Tower of some sort..

...even one done up in moss!

Not to mention a fabulous market cart heavily laden with all things french and fabulously fragrant...

I'm a Belieber!

Ok. I'm maybe going a bit overboard with that title about mega-pop-star Justin Bieber. But after hearing that the 16 year old singer and heartthrob was a hopeless romantic, I just had to change my mind about him, at least temporarily!

So what did "the Bieb" do you ask? Well, being newly smitten with Disney's actress Selena Gomez, who is 18, he rang up a local flower shop and bought out the whole place!
They were only too happy to oblige, delivering truckload after truckload of beautiful blooms
to Selena's home.

Reports are that Selena was "thrilled" with the gift. Who wouldn't be?
Maybe Selena will post a photo for the world to see....

You may not be looking to send a truckload of flowers,
but Bloomers can help you send a beautiful floral gift anywhere!
