Last week, Lesley and I attended the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Annual Philadelphia International Flower Show. We were so excited to see that — in addition to beautiful floral arrangements — stormwater management features were also on display!

There were rain barrels:

There were container gardens:

(This one is part of the Office of Community Development’s vacant lot transformation display, “From Blight to Bloom.”)

There were downspout planters:

We are just thrilled to see stormwater management being incorporated into the Flower Show this way!
