'Sept. 11 Photo Project'
The Women in Military Service for America Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery is the first stop in the national tour of The Sept. 11 Photo Project, a photography exhibit of the September terrorist attacks.

The project is designed not only as an art show, but also as an exhibit to communicate people's stories and experiences. Visitors wishing to have their photos included on the tour can add their work to a dedicated wall at the show.
The memorial site is at the ceremonial entrance to Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Va. Hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. daily. Admission is free. Call 202-452-5966 or 800-222-2294.
Philadelphia Flower Show
Visitors to this year's Philadelphia Flower Show will experience "The Pleasures of the Garden" while touring three theme exhibits. Victorian charm and elegance rise amid fields of lavender and hydrangea in "A Garden for the Senses circa 1850"; colonnades inspired by the architecture of ancient Tuscany wrap around an Italian piazza and house dozens of artistic floral sculptures in "Do You See What I See"; and the garden as a place of renewal, reflection, serenity and wonder is celebrated in the "Peace Garden." Visitors will also be able to tour acres of blooming back yards, front yards, terraces, side yards and sun rooms filled with ideas for the spring gardening season. For the indoor gardener, the show offers more than 2,000 examples of plants, collections, designs and flower arrangements. Throughout the more than 30-acre Pennsylvania Convention Center, floral exhibits, lectures and demonstrations abound. You can also visit the Flower Show Marketplace, where 140 vendors will offer garden equipment, supplies and gifts.
The show is open Sunday through March 10 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, 12th and Arch streets. Hours vary. Admission is $10-$24. Call 215-988-8899.
