Every March the week after the Philadelphia Flower Show, the Peter Becker Retirement Community of Harleysville, Pennsylvania holds a Flower Show revolving around a central theme. This year's theme was "See You In The Movies" highlighting scenes from Singing in the Rain, Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and Mary Poppins. I went this past Friday afternoon my first time ever. It was well worth it. In some of the displays, they used live characters dressed according to that time era. In the Willie Wonka display, the gardens are supposed to have been entirely edible. Below are a few photos I took at the event.
Pictures from previous shows can be found at the Peter Becker web site at The Enchanted Garden for the year 2005 and Past Flower Shows for the years 1994 through 2004. For those who may wonder, the Peter Becker Retirement Community is historically related to the Church of the Brethren but seeks to serve Seniors of all faiths.
