My world Ruby Tuesday and Macy's NYC Flower Show



My World
and Ruby Tuesday

After seeing the beauty in Central park and the walk back (like these red tulips)

We got dressed (they all made fun of my glasses and said they looked like Elton John what do you think?) Oh well they broke anyway?

we hopped on the subway

headed downtown



in the shadow of the empire State building


we were excited to go to the Macy's flower show in NYC which was April 5-19 and just stunning

the theme was based around this beautiful pink Flamingo

We walked in under this


to see this

there was something for everyone

Wow! Looks like a stunning flower show...and what a great place to find reds (and pinks). I like all the flamingoes best!

Ralph said...

Those Flamingos are stunning! The Spring flowers arrived in the nick of time - although warm now, winter memories still linger. The look of Spring is as important as the temp...

Mid 70-s Elton: Caribou, Captain Fantastic. I remember the style well (must be my age...)

Beautiful display!!! But the red tulips are my best pick! Enjoy your week!

Catherine said...

Thanks Marcia to share that display. These beautiful flowers scultures are shown temporarily, so many of wouldn't have the opportunity to watch that. I less than others !
Those flamingoes are so delicate and graceful.
I love what you've done with the head wearing a wig. This finger under the chin makes all the difference.
And those are glasses to be watched as well as to watch with.
Have a nice day.

I used to love the Macy's flower show. Have to say that the subway - the city itself - looks cleaner than I remember it from my years living there. Great series of shots. Thanks for giving me a nice visit to my old home.

These are beautiful photos, and the street scenes reminds me of NYC where I used to work for 3 years a long time ago.
