Prepare for the British Invasion. The nearly 184th Philadelphia Flower Show runs through March 10 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. This year’s theme is “Brilliant!” with exhibits focusing on the landscapes, culture and beauty of Great Britain. The event, sponsored by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, offers a variety of exhibits that pay homage to all things British, including a digitally enhanced rendition of Big Ben, cottage gardens, a floral take on the crown jewels and a greened-up version of the royal gates.
“Rough Cut” is a loose edit from The Baltimore Sun’s photographic coverage of the National Football League. Fanatic fans, marching bands, cheerleaders and lots of game action are just part of the spectacle that is the NFL. This week photojournalists Gene Sweeney, Jr. and Kenneth K. Lam traveled to Lincoln Field in Philadelphia, PA as the Ravens clashed with the Eagles, losing 24-23.
