If we had a dollar for every time someone said, "Brilliant!"
That was the word of the hour (and the day) Friday at the Four Seasons Hotel in Center City, where the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, producer of the Philadelphia Flower Show, officially introduced the 2013 theme.
That's it - Brilliant!
The theme represents a bit of a horticultural grab bag, designed to attract lovers of the old-fashioned English cottage gardens as well as more adventurous types, who prefer their designs contemporary, sleek, and minimalist.
PHS is throwing in a Big Ben Plaza for the main exhibit, with a show of music, light, and images that is projected on the clock tower, and the plaza around it, every hour. There will be no live entertainment, unless you count the people-watching.
