There is not much springtime visible in Philadelphia. It's cold and yet another snowstorm is in the forecast. But inside the city's convention center, spring covers 10-acres at the annual Philadelphia Flower Show.

This year's theme emphasizes the convergence of art and horticulture and exhibitors have gone to great lengths to create artistic masterpieces using flowers, plants, and other natural elements.

The show runs through March 9 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, located at 12th & Arch Streets in the center of Philadelphia. Tickets are available at the box office or online.
