Snow & Flower Shows

As it was snowing this morning in midtown Manhattan, I thought it was the perfect day to post some Macy's Annual Flower Show pictures from Herald Square:

The Broadway marquee entrance: magical!

The flamingo rules this Flower Show. Unfortunately, I kept calling them pelicans and George (raincoat shopping post tomorrow) had to keep correcting me. Not so up on my water birds.

Flower bedecked chandeliers.

The walls on the first floor are covered in displays.

Pretty bags with flowers. A dangerous combination.

The sights and smells are intoxicating. Visit NYC Mama if you have kids to read about the calming spell the show put on her children, thus allowing her to buy dresses. Very clever, Macy's.

The flower show is up until Saturday, April 18th. Visit and you'll leave wishing all our buildings could look and smell that good year-round. Happy snowy Spring!

Macy's Herald Square, 151 W. 34th btwn Broadway & 7th

It does look inviting. I'm going to start calling them pelicans, in solidarity with you.
