Philadelphia Flower Show II

More photos from the flower show....

One company did an unbelievable job depicting the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. All of the names of the soldiers who were killed aboard the Arizona were listed.  I noticed that several elderly men, wearing their military caps, spent a long time silently starring at this display. I still remember my Father saying that when he heard about the horrific attack on Pearl Harbor, he joined the Navy.  In the midst of such frivolity, it was a sobering reminder of the cost of freedom.
