Flower Show Pink Saturday

I spent yesterday running around in decidedly non-spring like cold rain, so I'm catching up today with Pink Saturday fun and my visit to the Macy's Flower Show. This year's theme is The Secret Garden and it was definitely worth a trip -- or two! -- to 34th Street to enjoy the beautiful flower displays.

There are magnificent flower displays everywhere. I saw this display above me...

 ...and this display caught my eye, too. 

Here are some of my favorite flowers. I especially enjoyed the orchids mixed in with plants and spring flowers. 

This flowering beauty greeted visitors entering on Herald Square.

I definitely needed the color and beauty of the flowers after our endless winter. I love seeing the shoots coming up and was thrilled to see my first crocus blooming yesterday. Daffodils, please be right behind!

April is going to be a big month in Buttercupland. I'm again joining the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. I had a great time last year and met terrific bloggers. The goal is to post daily -- or thereabouts -- in alphabetical order and to meet new bloggers throughout the world as you post. I've been thinking about my theme since last year and I've been taking pictures to prepare for this year's Challenge. If you like to eat -- don't we all! -- and you like New York City you're going to enjoy April in Buttercupland. We'll start with "A" on Tuesday, April 1 and that's no joke.

 There's still time to sign up and join the fun. 

As ever thanks for visiting. Your visits are what make blogging so much fun. Take care and have a great week.

What gorgeous flower displays.

I am going over the check out the A to Z event.

My problem is that the firs 6 days of April I am involved with the Craftcation conference. I volunteered to work the set up in order to attend classes for free because the entrance fee was nearly $400. I am excited about the classes I signed up to take.

I might just have to enjoy the A to Z through all of you who are participating.

Photos of flowers always make me happy. I guess the only persons who don't want to see the beauty live are those with severe allergies. Looking forward to your A to Z.

I've never known a store here to decorate like that, talented designers and lovely spring displays.

What a pretty flower show. Thanks for sharing it with us.
I joined A to Z from your blog... at least I tried to. I put in my entry form info but I didn't join the Linky thing. Do I have to sign up for that to really be in the challenge? I put the badge on my side bar but don't know if I'm actually signed up.

Have a good week. Hugs and thanks for the card!
