Did the force of nature drop a flower bomb?

Last week on Manhattan’s Museum Row the show to see was not in inside but behind The Metropolitan Museum in Central Park. The force of spring was seen dropping a flower bomb in a riot of pink, yellow and white blossoms.

The Obelisk, nicknamed Cleopatra’s Needle, is the oldest man-made object in Central Park. It was commissioned for Heliopolis on the banks of the Nile in 1500 BC. Each spring for only a few day’s it’s glory is honored by blossoming pink magnolia tree’s.

” If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change~ Buddha

ImageAnd Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.
~ Shelley

Throngs of Magnolia worshipers gathered and posed for a photo to commemorate the pink explosion.

Meanwhile on 58th & 5th Avenue the same story was unfolding, a symphony of white blossoms directed by a goddess.

Inside Berdorf’s a garden party was happening in celebration to the flower bombing on the streets.
