One of the first signs of spring in Minneapolis is the Macy’s Flower Show which takes place in the 8th Floor Auditorium of Macy’s downtown store. Every year all the colors are such a welcome sight for those of us who have been surrounded by white, drab snow.
This year the theme is the Painted Garden which celebrates India and the southern regions of Asia. Every color ever imagined can be found here in the beautifully designed creations, and the fragrant flowers remind us that spring will soon be here!
The free event is being held from March 24 through April 7. Most of the flowers looked great yesterday, but don’t wait too long because the hyacinths were starting to look a little tired.
Flowers don’t worry about how they’re going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful. ~Jim Carrey
Wishing you and yours a very Happy Easter!
loved the flower show, thanks
I might have to go back and take another look! I have cabin fever.
How beautiful, I’m not sure if we have anything like that around here or not. But what a nice change from the dull drab of winter!
It’s so great to see how Macy’s did The Flower Show in other cities! If you want to check out the NYC one, I just posted some pics: http://newsblog.jessicahaasdesigns.com/2013/03/28/macys-flower-show-2013-the-painted-garden-new-york-city/
