    Mr. Ball,
    Thanks for your anaysis of Philly Flwr Show. Just got back and found it to be amazing, especially the shoes, hats, dresses all made out of flowers. wow!!! Your comment about the lighting is just so true,but I am sure they are trying to create an ambiance with dim lighting. Although it makes it hard to take pictures.
