Philadelphia Flower Show: Enchanted Spring

A harbinger of spring? Nothing less than 10 acres of it. The 2006 Philadelphia Flower Show presented "Enchanted spring...A tribute to mother nature."

You just have to love the creativity of these folks. Who also  helped mother nature with her natural flare. Incorporating fire, gushers and snow.

Mother Nature had her say, with "Natura"  the goddess of nature, in reclined comfort, yet  occupying a 25 feet high by 60 feet long space as the largest plant sculpture in the world. And the central feature of the flower show.

At the main entrance to this year's flower show exhibit was the fantastic "Floratopia tree" fragrance-and-all.  Towering over the entrance as visitors file in with great anticipation of what lies ahead.

They will soon  focus straight ahead  on Natura. While immediately to their right Mother nature's  garden "Fire" intermittently blew her flames.

After all this greenery came a  contrast, subdued in white.  Mother nature's "Snow." The garden of a wintry season, with a simulation of a snow  fall, cycling every 7 minutes.
