These ribbon flowers were something else!  According to the tour guides they were done over many, many hours by Macy’s employees,  no glue or tying involved.

Today’s installment includes a treat. As always if you just let things unfold the city rewards. Just as I was leaving Macy’s I had the good fortune to run into Oswaldo Gomez, Ms. Colombia. A mainstay at every colorful city celebration for years I have had the pleasure of photographing him before.  

and all the painted poodles, too

it isn't a parade without ms colombia

This is the first time I stopped and had a conversation and I am so glad I did.  What an engaging and all around joyful man!  I can’t until the next time we meet.  And yes,  he was in his element at the Flower Show,  as he said, “Lady Gaga is in the house.” 

As we come to the end of another year and another flower show I will leave you where we began,  with the Lady in Red.
