Blossoming cherry trees in Central Park and the Annual Macy's Flower Show-it's official, spring is finally here!  This year's Flower Show, named The Painted Garden, was a South Asian inspired extravaganza featuring vibrant colors, ornate designs and gardens brimming with flowers and plants drenched in stunning jewel tones and spice market colors one would encounter in India.

The centerpiece of the show was a 10 foot tall floral draped elephant statue inspired by the elephants used in traditional Indian weddings.

 Thousands of flowers blanketed the spectacular painted elephant 
 Vibrant spice market colors 
Souk market splendour
 Magical courtyard

I was suggested this website by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my trouble.
