The land that defines "la dolce vita" - the sweet life - will inspire the 2009 Philadelphia Flower Show presentation, "Bella Italia." The Show will be an extraordinary experience for anyone who appreciates the natural beauty, culture, and spirit of Italy. Produced by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, the Philadelphia Flower Show will transport guests to the majestic gardens of ancient Rome, the lush hills of the Tuscan countryside, the romantic waters of Venice, the artful flora of Florence, and many other distinctive landscapes of Italy. The bus trip is sponsored by the Guild of Ocean Medical Center. Proceeds from the trip will benefit Ocean's services and programs.
