Well Profs, we’re about halfway through the spring semester! Time is flying and our schedules are getting busier and busier. I think it’s time to slow down, take a step back and smell the roses… literally! The Philadelphia Flower Show is coming to town March 2-10 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on 12th and Arch Street. Student tickets range from $21-$26.

There are countless things to do, from photography tours to butterfly and plant grower exhibits. The Flower Show Shop offers all sorts of gardening souvenirs. There’s even workshops and demonstrations offered throughout the week.
