The promise of spring feels almost within reach, thanks to the brilliant blooms of the 2014 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

All week long, the Flower Show has captivated thousands of visitors from around the globe with stunning displays celebrating the beauty of plants and the art of gardening.

This year’s theme, ARTiculture, brought an incredible fine art-filled experience at the Convention Center and tons of guests, events and special displays — like the vertical dancers of BANDALOOP performing in the entrance garden — have made the 2014 event pretty impressive.

Today, flower power might take a back seat to star power as none other than cheerful Food Network television personality Rachael Ray makes an appearance for a live Q&A at the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show today, Friday, March 7 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.

With a resume that includes syndicated television star, bestselling cookbook author, founder/editorial director of her own lifestyle magazine, and founder of the Yum-o! charitable organization, the conversation ought to be varied, engaging and, of course, peppered with Ray’s signature catchphrases.

Heading over at lunchtime? While taking in all of the exhibits on the Flower Show main floor, check out the Artist’s Palette Café on the Convention Center’s Grand Hall, which dishes fare inspired by the restaurants of Philadelphia Iron Chef and restauranteur Jose Garces. In a partnership with ARAMARK, guests can dine on Garces-developed dishes like tamales, Cubano sandwiches and empanadas.
