March 23, 2012 Continued some more

It looks like it is all fun and games from the photos. Here we are at the Philadelphia Flower Show, looking at the displays and watching the dancers from the Polynesian Cultural Center. The Philly Flower Show is like a county fair and gardening extravaganza. This year’s theme was Hawaii. Milton Kaka, the boy from the family we knew in Australia is in the lower right of the photo with the dancers.

While out inspecting missionary apartments last week we came upon some particularly beautiful flowering Magnolia trees in an old Italian cemetary so we decided to stop and take a photo. Cemeterys abound in this old city and sometimes doubles as a sort of reverent park area.

There is an old Quaker Meeting house from the early 1800’s along a path we often walk for exercise in the mornings. The old homes and some of the very old meeting places were very small and it looks like the benches would have gotten hard for sitting after long gatherings
