How did I manage to miss this in years past? For two weeks each spring, around Easter, Macy's in midtown suddenly develops schizophrenia. Is it a store, or a botanical garden? Shoppers flock to see the first floor transformed by the addition of literally thousands and thousands of spring plants (tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, lilies, azaleas, flowering crab apples, and a bevy of other gorgeous specimens whose names escape me at the moment), all displayed above the selling floor so that you literally gawk your way past handbags and jewelry, staring up and hoping not to trip over an errant stroller or a tourist snapping a digital photo. There are even complimentary twenty-minute tours for those who want to be certain not to miss any of the spectacular "gardens" and the Bouquets of the Day, splendid displays by sought-after floral designers. Definitely a Must See if you're in town when it is in bloom!
