Flower Show Saturday


Flower show Saturday! I went to Macy’s flower show yesterday. I had expected real flower show though it was like a part of the display. They put the flowers on the passage. There are so many people, (I went to Saturday afternoon. Of course, Macy’s is always crowded weekend.)It was difficult to see whole flower arrangement. I was very disappointed. I enjoyed close view of flowers though…
Before Macy’s flower show, I went to Japanese flower arrangement show, Sogetu Ikebana at Nippon Club gallery. 24 Ikebana artists showed their pieces. All of them are beautiful. It was interesting comparison between Western flower arrangement and Japanese one. I felt as if I was watching oil painting at Macy’s and at Sumi painting at Nippon Club. Macy’s one focused on color and area. On the other hand, Sogetu Ikebana focused on line and negative space.
Despite of my disappointment at Macy’s, I still enjoyed those beautiful and exotics flowers of both shows. Here are photos from Macy’s Flower Show.
