Macy's Flower Show 2009

Pin It

IMG_3152The 2009 Macy's Flower Show is in full bloom at the New York City Herald Square store. 

I took a long lunch the other day and snapped some photos of this year's exhibit.  I have to say, compared to last year's show, this year's was a disappointment. 

You can check out my photo album of the 2009 show, but you'll notice I didn't take nearly as many pictures this year as I last year because there just wasn't nearly as many exhibits to inspire me.

I'm thinking the bad economy had an impact on this year's show budget.

Giant flamingos made out of flowers are the most distinctive elements of this year's show.  The flamingos IMG_3107are part of the Living Garden and according to Macy's is their salute to plastic lawn flamingos:

These flamingos were handcrafted by the artisans at the Macy's Parade Studio, and were hand planted with hundreds of pink kalanchoe by our landscape partner, Ireland Gannon Associates.

Even better than the flower show, were all the spring flowers in bloom across the street in Herald Square Park.  The area is filled with planters and blooming trees, and it's the perfect place to sit and enjoy a few minutes of spring sunshine.

The flower show show runs until April 19th, so for a little taste of spring pop over to Macy's and then have a cup of coffee in Herald Square Park.
