Nostalgia and autumn flowers make up Pittsburgh flower show

The annual flower show in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, blended autumn flowers with nostalgia in its historical, fall theme this year, Pittsburgh Live reports.

The show, which opened Thursday at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, was filled with more than 5,000 chrysanthemums in festive hues of burgundy, orange and gold, the news source reports. They were accented by historical photographs of Phipps from years ago - showing architectural additions and renovations as well as past show exhibitions.

Each room of the venue featured a different autumnal theme - the 50-year-old Sunken Garden was bathed in shades of red from the mums and other plants and fall flowers. The East Room had an orange theme, decorated with pumpkins and mums of the same color.

"We wanted to just give them a little nostalgic view of Phipps," Laura Schoch, the Phipps horticulturist who designed the fall show, told the news source. "I want people to remember ... a time they came and visited, and what they liked the most. People love fall colors."
