Kevin Kelly takes us on a journey to Holland via some amazing displays at the Philadelphia Flower Show.

"Good morning, fellow GPODers. Yes, I finally was able to make it to the Philadelphia Flower Show. The entire event this year was quite a challenge. The day I was scheduled to attend, we were hit with 19 inches of snow, which cancelled transportation out of Harrisburg (I take the train). My next day off work was Sunday, which was the last day of the show. As you know, I planned to meet Rhonda (fellow GPOD and gardener extraordinaire). She had surgery on her hand on Wednesday, but felt well enough to travel on Sunday. I met her and 2 of her wonderful children. We had a great time at the show. The train back to Harrisburg was delayed for 1 hour (and then experienced further delays at each station). The 95 minute trip took almost 3 hours. The train was very crowded. I had the “pleasure” to have a drunken person sit next to me. He passed out, then threw up multiple times in the aisle. Nothing good comes easy!

Hope you enjoy the pictures. Kevin."
