Macy's Flower Show Windows

Spring must really be here because The Macy's Flower Show kicked off today in New York City.  The Herald Square flagship store is awash with the colors and scents of fresh flowers.  A veritable jungle of "Flora Exotica" awaits and this year's display includes two 14 foot tall giraffe topiaries that welcome visitors into the store. 

Not all the excitement is inside however.  Don't forget to take a stroll by the Macy's window displays.  Sculptures by artist Kathy Ruttenberg are going to be on display during the show from April 1 - April 15.

I'd never heard of Kathy Ruttenberg until I watched as the windows were being set up last week, and I'm happy I got a chance to experience her unique sense of style and humor.  The sculptures are peculiar but in an eccentric kind of way.  Not so eccentric they'll give you nightmares mind you, but just enough to be make you want to see more.

The artist and the Macy's window dressers have created a magical little world where small animals and birds are cared for by warm and earthy figures, tree branches are transformed into airy skirts or luminous lanterns, and delicate floral patterns enhance all the facets of this vibrant visual gallery.Img_0326_1 Img_0327_1_2

So if you're in the NYC area and you go over to the Macy's Flower Show, don't forget to take a look at the windows.  Welcome to spring!
