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.

Throngs of Magnolia worshipers gathered and posed for a photo to commemorate the pink explosion.
” Sit Quietly, do nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself ~ Zen Saying
” happiness is to hold flowers in both hands” ~ Japanese Proverb
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.
