The British are coming To the Philadelphia Flower Show.  This past week I attended the Philadelphia Flower shows press conference.  It was such experience  to hear what he show theme is this year Brilliance everything British.  Such a fun Idea coming off the Olympics and in anticipation of the Princess Katies new baby.

So Pull out your Fasitnators, eat some tea sandwiches and head to the flower show. DSC_1403

The family stuff offered this year looks good, too. I took advantage of the family package to buy our tickets plus get a membership with PHS for a year.
