A Treat for the Eyes and Nose

Today my friend Laurey and I went to downtown Minneapolis for the annual flower show at Macy's (it will always be Dayton's to me!). This year's theme was Towers of Flowers. As soon as we got off the elevator of the 8th floor we could smell the beautiful scents. Wonderful!

There were flowering cherry trees, tulips, daffodils, orchids, amaryllis, azaleas, cyclamen, hyacinths, freesia, hydrangea, peonies, magnolia, rhododendron, roses, and more. Many of these were accenting towering shapes - including the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Eiffel Tower, and others that looked Italian to me.

Thanks for all the pictures, Donna. I saw that it was coming up in the paper, but didn't get there to see it. It does look beautiful!
