PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Winter-weary gardeners and painters alike may find inspiration in the colorful palette of the Philadelphia Flower Show, which uses plants and petals to pay homage to work by artists like Matisse, Calder and Kandinsky.

The main exhibitors partnered with major U.S. museums to produce "ARTiculture," this year's floral extravaganza which opened Saturday and runs through March 9.

A perennial harbinger of spring, the flower show will be perhaps more fervently welcomed this season after the toll of an unusually cold and snowy winter along the Eastern Seaboard.

NEW YORK (AP) – Quick, what's your favorite "Sex and the City" moment involving Carrie Bradshaw and her adored shoe collection?

Was it the time she got mugged, and the mugger specifically demanded her Manolo Blahniks? "Somebody stop him!" she cried out. "He took my strappy sandals!"

Or perhaps the time another pair of Manolos was stolen because, annoyingly, the hostess at a baby shower demanded that everyone take off their shoes.

Or maybe the time Carrie realized she'd spent so much on shoes, she couldn't afford a down payment on an apartment.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Those "Nutrition Facts" labels that are plastered on nearly every food package found in grocery stores are getting a new look.

Calories would be in larger, bolder type, and consumers for the first time would know whether foods have added sugars under label changes being proposed by the Obama administration.

Serving sizes would be updated to make them more realistic. A serving of ice cream, for example, would double to a full cup, closer to what people actually eat.

The proposed overhaul comes as science has shifted.
