Happy Valentine’s Day! Since nothing is more romantic than a press conference, we wanted to share some photos from last Friday’s announcement about the Flower Show’s economic impact on Philadelphia and beyond.  See Mayor Michael Nutter and other Flower Show supporters in this Flickr stream.

You can read more about the event in Sunday’s Inquirer. And if you haven’t heard how the Flower Show generates 25,000 hotel nights and brings in visitors from all 50 states, here are some handy visual aids (don’t you just love pie charts?).
