Springtime in the City

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all had a good week. I’ve been in the art rooms of FIT and the Teaching Studios being the dutiful model. It’s good. Work is a good thing. I even had enough time before my FIT class today to take some pictures of Macy’s annual spring Flower Show, a tradition that dates back to the 1940s. My grandmother loved the Flower Show. My Mom would take her every year. Grandma isn’t with us anymore but the flowers at Macy’s, like in nature, come back every year. It’s a gorgeous polychromatic spectacle – colors bursting everywhere, up in the rafters, along display cabinets, and down to the aisles, with wonderful aromas permeating the air.

See all my photos of the Flower Show at my Flickr page. Hope you enjoy them 🙂

    We must have just missed this when we were in New York last year, given that we were there this week! The flower festival must have been over by the time we got down to Macy’s, towards the latter part of our week – great shame, as it looks wonderful! It was interesting how even somewhere as absolutely urban as New York could manifest spring around the edges of the buildings, in the patches of garden and especially the cherry blossom trees in flower.

      The Flower Show ended this weekend, Sunday I think. So yes, it probably had just ended when you were here. I’ve always thought they should keep it up until Easter. I don’t know why they don’t.

      Thanks for your lovely comments!
