Longwood Gardens Blooms and Bamboo featuring a first of its kind exhibit.

Longwood Gardens presents Blooms and Bamboo, a first-of-its-kind Japanese Art exhibit

Blooms and Bamboo is the latest exhibit to open at Longwood Gardens.

The exhibit is a first-of-its-kind creation for Iemoto Akane Teshigahara, who has never built a Sogetsu piece of art this large outside her home country of Japan. Sogetsu is a Japanese art form involving flowers and garden design that dates back to the seventh century.

Akane is the Iemoto in what is known as Ikebana, a more avant-garde style of Sogetsu. Her exhibit stands more than 30 feet tall and is made of more than 600 bamboo poles. Her two pieces called 'Pulsation' are complemented by 23 smaller Sogetsu displays spread around the Longwood Conservatory. It will coincide with Longwood's annual chrysanthemum display, another design feature rooted in Japanese tradition.

Bread allergy? No problem. Elsie's sandwich shop in Haddon Township specializes in pickle sandwiches.

Elsie's in Haddon Township is serving up sandwiches that are a big DILL!

These sandwiches are a big DILL...literally.

Elsie's sandwich shop in Haddon Township, New Jersey, started making pickle sandwiches out of necessity when owner, Katherine Cohen's mother was diagnosed with diabetes and couldn't eat bread anymore. Coming from a family of picklers, Katherine put all the sandwich fixings between two pickles, instead of buns, and the shop has become a fast favorite for people with food allergies and those who typically wouldn't be able to eat bread
