Everyone is ready for springtime and that was very apparent at the Philadelphia Flower Show. So instead of more snow pictures I will share a few more of the sights I saw there last Friday. This is what I wish my outdoor Wednesday looked like.
But it still looks the same outdoors here, even though our weather is improving.
Actually I do have a few brave sprouts trying to emerge to spite the snow all around them, but looking at these pretty flowers is much more pleasing to my eyes in the middle of March.
The warmer temperatures we have been having are melting the white stuff but more importantly they are lifting the winter doldrums.
It won’t be long and there will be scenes like these out in our very own backyards.

Visit Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday!
It was so nice to see them all blooming and fragrant.
The colors of hydrangeas never fail to please.

For Camera Critters I thought I would show critters from the show. The theme was “Around the World.” This was part of India’s display which also makes it fit the subject “Foriegn” for Photohunter. Amazing what creativity people have. All of the exhibitions were beautiful scenery to gaze at. Just gorgeous.
