MACY’S Towers of Flowers

Tom's Eye View Blog

Once a year, Macy’s does the flower thing.  Half million forced blooms fresh from the greenhouses all with  no scent.  Zilch !  I wanted to sniff!

“Towers” is the theme………..and indeed, there were a few very tacky ones here and there.

The entrance doorways were blanketed with FAKES.  Pretty……but of course no scent.

The tourists LOVE this show.

WOW!  A tower……but no Rapunzel.

Michael gets a birdhouse………….

I think they could have tucked in at least 500 more stems.

Ferns……..looking for a forest.  After the show…….they get tossed.

The orchids were beautiful………….saved us a trip to the Botanical Garden.

Tulip tower……….with no tulips.

Eiffel Tower………..Oh Chanel………….you deserve better.

Another tacky tower………jam packed with too many blooms.

My fave was the cactus garden……….

“Cacti”…….”Cactuses”……..”cactus”………..lots of them.

and  a succulent or two………..more like two thousand.
