All Abloom, Japan’s Beauties

It was in the high 50’s here today in New York which left us feeling more like early spring than the end of January. To experience some of the colors of spring, I took myself to Japan Bloom Fair 2012 at the Japan Society. More than three hundred varieties of flowers grown in Japan are on display and as you can see, the product is absolutely stunning. I went a little crazy photographing the sweet peas. The range of colors and abundance of frills was overwhelming. The show promises to be a feast for the eyes! And it will help tide you over until Spring really does arrive.
