Carousel Animals

The 2011 Philadelphia Flower Show theme this year was Springtime in Paris. At the show entry, there was a large replica of the bottom of the Eiffel Tower.
Near the bottom of the tower, was the Carousel Stage with performances during the hours of the show each day and throughout the garden area, carousel animals from natural plant materials and flowers.  They were amazing!  Due to the crowd, it was difficult for me to get clean shots without people so overlook the humans and enjoy the animals.

The garden created by the Philadelphia Parks Department included this sculpted Rodin.
I hope you have enjoyed this virtual view of the Philadelphia Flower Show.  I am linking to Seasonal Sundays
