Macy’s Flower Show 2012

Standard

This year’s  show boasted a Brazilian flower theme in bright tropical colors. It was a much smaller display, compared to past years. No longer inside of the  store, it is in a tent directly outside of Macy’s. I hope that you enjoy the pictures as much as we did! If you are in town, please check out Macy’s windows that resonate with the beautiful and colorful spirits of Brasil!

Union Square Market

Standard

There is nothing like the promise of spring being sprung on a Saturday afternoon in NYC’s Union Square. I come here often on Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday for some floral inspirations for upcoming events, and am never let down. Enjoy the sprigs of pussy willow, spring basket bulbs of hyacinth and iris, and pretty faces of pansies. I spoke with several of the growers who provide such luscious plants and they promised that there will be even more types and colors of plants to come in the next few weeks. So get on down to Union Square and get yourself some spring happiness!

New York Botanical Gardens Gift Shop

Shop in the Garden is a lovely place to pick up your bits and bobs of floral goodness. Several varieties of orchids and other plant life await you! Beautiful and well crafted dining ware adorn the shelves of this shop. Scented perfumes and body soaps are other gift items that will entice you. Take a moment to read some of the instructional books and stationary. It is not a place to be missed!

The New York Botanical Garden boasts it’s annual Orchid show, on display from March 3 – April 22, 2012. I had the pleasure of enjoying one of our first days of spring and attending the Orchid Show, what a treat! Admission is $20.00 (give an email address and the cost is $18.00). Please make the time to go and see the loveliest of visual displays that you can imagine! Patrick Blanc’s Vertical Gardens are breathtaking and done with such a love for texture, color, and natural beauty. The orchids that we all know and love; Dendrobium, Cattleya, Cymbidium, Oncidium, and Lady Slipper, to name a few. There were some orchids on the scene that you don’t see as often, Nun’s Cap, White Fairy and Reed varieties. My favorite will always be the Pansy Orchid, delicious little faces of cuteness! I hope that you enjoy the pictures that are to follow. Please make the time to visit the show, you will not be disappointed!
