Spring can't be too far away if blooms like these are possible... on Thursday Peggy & I went to the Philadelphia Flower Show - Philly's about 2 hours from DC, so we made a long day trip and it was well worth it.  The theme was "Bella Italia" which was interpreted in many imaginative ways by various floral designers, landscape architects, gardeners, etc.  
We spent several hours walking through the beautiful displays, then felt inclined to follow the theme for dinner. We found a lovely little Italian restaurant, Portofino, just a few blocks away from the convention center, so we finished the evening with a delicious meal, then made the drive back to DC. 
Here are just a couple of photos, the rest are posted in my gallery, click on the word "Flowers" in the title above...
