“We’re going to Hawaii!” my peeps and I kept shouting on the way there.  And it was just what the doctor ordered for our sunlight-starved, oxygen-deprived, pale winter bodies.   And I’m glad there were so many plants to compensate for all the oxygen-breathing crowds – I mean, it was SO crazy packed I could barely get over to see Longwood Instructor Jane Godshalk’s amazing Hula Man.

Hula man in AIFD's installation by Jane G. - WOW.

I liked how there were rows of arrangements displayed in their own little specially-lit boxes

Ladies, look over here at the Amorphophallus!

Prizewinning Euphorbia esculenta

I feel this way sometimes - it's a good thing

Don't you just hate when that happens?
