Gallery: PHOTOS: Macy’s Flower Show Features Giant Toucan Topiary Cover...

For the first time in 38 years, Macy's famous Flower Show has bloomed inside a massive tent in Herald Square instead of in the store itself - and those who step inside are in for a Brazil-inspired treat. Capturing all of the colors of Carnival, the show has been delighting floraphiles since last week with its themed gardens that offer New Yorkers an escape to the Amazonian rainforests. We popped into the show on Saturday and the lavish displays of greenery, vibrant blossoms and working waterfall were the perfect way to avoid the dreary, drizzly weather outside. Step into our gallery to see all of our favorite parts of the show, including this giant toucan topiary covered in 25,000 hand-dipped Brazilian button flowers and magnolia leaves.

    Loved the display in Philadelphia the day after we saw the tent in New York City. You tube pictures of the Chicago display showed a more formal room-like presentation. We’d love to see Minneapolis and San Francisco in person during the displays, but hope someone will be kind enough to show us more You Tube views. GREAT CONCEPT! –Rob & Roy, Philadelphia
