Flower Power in Philadelphia

Have a long layover coming up in Philadelphia? Check out the Philadelphia Flower Show, March 2nd – 9th at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The country’s largest and oldest indoor flower show traces its roots back to 1829. And this year the folks at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) will have a display there.

The airport has teamed up with the W.B. Saul High School for Agricultural Sciences to create an exhibit that recreates the wetlands that surround the airport.

What will you see? “A re-created tidal marsh where water ebbs and flows as well as 37 species of plants and a variety of wildlife.”
