"The Secret Garden" - a Picture Heavy Post

Gentle Friends, last year about this time I posted about the Annul Flower Show at Macy's.  Last year it was called "The Painted Garden," this year it is called.......

 "The Secret Garden."  It  again starts off with the big picture windows on the street, which are really hard to get decent photos of.....

....  the music they were playing on the street was one of my favorite pieces, Clair de Lune by Debussy....

... once inside the main floral displays are throughout the first floor.... all over the perfume and makeup departments  they were on raised platforms....





... walking towards the middle of the store in front of the escalators was this....

... turning right and going into the watch department one encounters....

... and a detail shot of the dinosaur planters....

... they are just plastic with a hole cut in them, and then dipped in white and gold paint.... a bit odd for my taste...

... the main watch counter had this on top, and yes, that fountain was just splashing away.....  walking on towards the high end and fashion jewelry departments....


.... and in the middle of all the bling, where last year the elephant stood, was this flamboyant lady.....

..... the perfume department was also very floral...

... with lots of rusty and found objects.... like tires, fencing and a bathtub....


....and what flower show isn't complete without a rusty car wreck.....

Overall it was a lovely floral display and they really outdid themselves once again!!!   I hope you enjoyed this little trip to Macy's!!

Wow, that's amazing. I've never seen anything like that outside of the Chelsea Flower Show.
Actually I kind of <3 the little dinosaurs

Such lovely pictures. You truly do live in an awesome city. Is that Mr. Rico I see in the lovely photo of the outside window? I love how this picture shows what is inside and also reflects what is outside at the same time.

Ohhh Clair de lune is such a lovely example of how the piano can express so many emotions.

Happy Weekend!

Hi Edgar

I hope you received the pattern book in the mail that I returned to you last week. Please let me know so that I can be assured you got it.

I hope you have a restful weekend.

Susan said...

WOW!! Thank you for taking us to the flower show. I like the purple bicycles and even the funny little dinosaurs - maybe not in gold but I they would be very cute in a dino-obsessed kid's room

Julie said...

WOW ... thanks for sharing Edgar, so very pretty, I bet the smell there was heavenly.

Kate said...

How lovely, thanks for sharing. I especially like the ones with the bathtub, bicycle & car ~ they remind me of the displays you often see on traffic roundabouts in France.
We had Clare de Lune played by the harpist at our wedding ~ such a beautiful piece.
