Creativity in Bloom
I have not been to the 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show...yet
It is the week of March the 3rd
I heard it is wonderful and everything British!
The Philadelphia Flower Show is filled with artistic creations
as well as innovations using flowers, shrubs and so much more..
What I do know is that the flower show is not just about flowers...
and people who may not particularly like flowers may find it very enjoyable!
I do not necessarily care for flowers very much. Sure they are fine for the table and
special occasions but I do not pride myself on the facts of names, climates, and details...
However, the special use of flowers to create beautiful displays of different uses and
environments is fabulous at the show. As an artist, I enjoy the arrangements,
uses and displays of flowers, and appreciate the ideas to feed my creativity.
It is amazing what is one inspired by when looking at flowers.
Inspired by flowers, I created this poem...
