Happy Spring!

Happy Vernal Equinox and Holy Week, My Lovelies!  There's no better way to celebrate spring than with art and flowers.  Below are some of my favorite scenes from Art in Bloom at the New Orleans Museum of Art.

Mail in the Baroque gallery

Floral fountain among the folk art

A floral lady sits beside a golden replica of Abraham Lincoln'd childhood cabin.  The cabin is true to size, and patrons can walk inside.  I was amazed at how tiny it is!

I particularly enjoyed the floral arrangements inspired by paintings.  In these photos below, you can see the arrangement in the foreground and the paintings in the background.

The Easter Bunny is helping me decorate for Easter.  Come back on Wednesday and see our joint efforts!

Until next time...
