Philadelphia International Flower Show The world’s largest indoor flower show : The Philadelphia Flower Show is deeply rooted in the history of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS), which was founded in 1827. Charter members brought interesting plants to display at meetings and, eventually, to share with the public. In the 1960s, PHS took over management of the Philadelphia Flower Show, also encouraging participation by amateurs — individuals and garden clubs.<br />
<br />
With the help of hundreds of volunteers the show raises significant funds to support PHS’s community greening programs and other civic initiatives in Philadelphia.

Yesterday at Coal Piers Photo Shoot : The Grafitti Bridge, aka Pier 124, aka Coal Piers, aka Coal Pier #18, aka Philly's Secret Museum of Grafitti Art..I have found all of these descriptions from different sources.Philadelphia was once a center of coal transportation, mainly in the Port Richmond area and the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad Company would transport anthracite coal from the region’s mines to its Port Richmond coal station where rail cars on a high pier would dump coal into ships and barges stationed below. This area operated as a coal pier for Conrail until 1991, when they moved their coal operation to Baltimore. Conrail still owns the ever decaying  property but that same feature makes it an ideal place for street and grafitti artists to practice their craft. It's a favorite for photographers and I've ventured in from time to time to get some shots of the everchanging spot.

Color Run in Philadelphia 2012 : o, Philly! We did it. The annual Color Run was run in the heart of Philly, July 8th, 2012. The only question is “Were you ready for the craziest, colorful, 5k of your life?” You bet you were.  The Color Run Philadelphia was awesome....The Color Run was a one of a kind experience that was less about speed and more about enjoying a color crazy day with your friends and family. There were participants of all different speeds, ages, shapes, and sizes toeing the start line. Whether you were a casual morning mall walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of the Color Run course was the most enjoyable real estate you’ve traveled in a VERY long time.  What a morning!!
