Mr. Zuska and I went to the Philadelphia Flower Show today. It’s always wonderful to enter the show on a dull winter day and be struck with the glory of a giant convention center in full bloom. The show officially opens tomorrow, but today was the preview for Pennsylvania Horticultural Society members – of which there must be a zillion, because the show floor was mobbed.
One of the biggest – certainly one of the most excited – mobs was around this exhibit:
Yes: shoes! Made out of flowers ‘n’ stuff! Close ups after the jump.
I liked these:
These looked like they’d tickle:
Elegant, but a bit pointy:
Ooh! I’m soooo ready for summer!
I could see Isis wearing these:
Something nice for a cocktail party:
These are my absolute favorites (the ones in the foreground; the ones in the back are nice too, but you gotta love the shine on the ones up front):
Something for Isis to wear to work?
I don’t know if these boots were made for walking…but who cares?
If you are in town, go to the flower show! It will warm your heart and cheer your soul. If you can’t – take heart anyway! Spring isn’t far off. The little tips of crocus are peeping up in my backyard already. Yay!
