Ric and I visited the Phila Flower Show yesterday and they had some outstanding displays. Sorry to say that my slight tremor made some of the pics a bit shaky but I may post those anyway as I want you to get an idea of them.
I will start out with what I thought was one of the most wonderful displays It was a wire dress form stuffed soil and moss and a living dress. The skirt was growing ivy the bodice a mix of semps.

..................entire dress...............................................front bodice............................................back bodice......................

I will be putting together other threads with different pictures in other areas and will post links here when I get them done. That way you can travel to different Cubits to visit and see more of the show and maybe you will have some new visitors to your Cubit.

I absolutely love the texture of Echeverai 'Doris Taylor'.
Holly do you know the name of the two plants in this middle row of the last post. I would love to know what they are. Wonder if they would be hardy here? I love the form of both. Lovey dubby
How wonderful all the photos are Holly, thank you so much for sharing them. Can't wait to see the links to the other Cubits where you will be posting more photos of the show. Thumbs up

Sorry Lynn, I did try to get names of some of the plants but those I didn't have. They were just beautiful in person my poor pics don't do them justice.
Glad you are liking them.
Chris, I have a couple of Hawthroias and think they are very interesting, too.
These are the plants I brought home from the show I don't have any ID's for them so if you can ID any of them I would appreciate it.

Chris, Those are the only plants I brought home from the show. I have gotten so many plants in the last two weeks that I swore I would only bring home a few cute succulents.
No Lynn, Those new little pots don't have any Hawthroias that I know of. I meant that I have a gotten a few Hawthroias in the last year.
