Simplified Chinese

Although this isn't simple for me to read, the 15 books in my 'Learning to Get Along' series have now been translated into simplified Chinese characters.  I am excited for the many Mandarin speaking children that the books will now reach!

Flower Show in Philly

March 13th was a large Flower Show in Philadelphia with so many forced blooms on various themes. I went up with two friends for the day.
This was one of my favorites.  The "pineapples" in the background are of solid flowers.

This was a fun chandelier idea made from tin planters.
This was a new space saving way to grow a garden.  This wall was made of solid lettuce.  I was craving a salad about that time.  :)  Pretty hand canned produce in the jars.
These tomato plants grew on an overhead trellis.  How convenient for nibbling.
An array of tulips.
This vendor made beautiful jewelry from real flowers.
This vendor had beautiful flower and fruit displays for sale.
There was lots more.  But you didn't want to see the boring stuff, right?
