THANK YOU for planning a great trip to the Philadelphia Flower Show. It was my first time there and it was truly amazing!!! Both the flower show and the trip to Longwood Gardens gave me some inspiration. It was a nice group of people, the accommodations and meals at the hotel were top notch. Great trip! Kudos to both of you!!!  JD
