Your neighborhood is full of gardening inspiration.

The annual flower market at Rittenhouse Square returns for two days beginning on Wednesday, May 4. Rittenhouse Square Flower Market for Children's Charities benefits four children’s health and welfare service organizations each year. The organizations change annually. 

For 2016, the four chosen are: Elwyn's Davidson School, Frankie's World Foundation, Pennsylvania School for the Deaf and Ryan's Case for Smiles. The funds will go toward projects, like Frankie's World Foundation's outdoor preschool playground for children who are medically fragile.

So shopping for new springtime goods benefits both your home and garden and a community.

At the market, there will be more than just flowers, planters and plants. On May 4, there will be two musical performances and garden-themed theater games. Then, on May 5, there will be music; dance; storytelling; raffles; a hopscotch challenge; expanded food, drink and shopping vendors; and sign language classes.

On both days, the market will be set up from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
