Saturday in Philly

Spent a good part of the most recent Saturday in Philadelphia, starting with a ride on the SEPTA train from Norristown into Jefferson Station. First time for that. We got a different perspective than the usual route of driving the Schuylkill Expressway. I’m glad we were on the train.

Along the way, we made stops at, among other places, Conshohocken, Spring Mill, Manayunk, Wissahickon, Allegheny, and Temple University. Jefferson Station is the stop you want if you’re heading to the PA Convention Center, which was our destination for the annual PHS (Philadelphia Horticultural Society) flower show, billed as the world’s largest indoor show.

The show is an annual March tradition and offers up something for everyone- serious gardeners, the eco-aware, families with children, or folks who just need to see something that’s pleasing to the eye. This year’s theme was The Wonders of Water.

It was a busy day, a bit too crowded for my liking, and the vendors started getting on my nerves. Still, not a bad way to spend a few hours on a Saturday.

We walked to the Comcast Center and had some lunch. It wasn’t very busy there, and it was difficult not to look up.
