Spring Colors in February

NY in Bloom Easter colors

They hold the NY in Bloom Flower show in February. Being Albany, NY it is inside, of course, but the variety of colors remind us that Spring is not far away. This combination of colors reminds me of Easter…Eggs, or maybe Peeps 🙂

Flowers at the Museum

NY in Bloom

Most days, admission to the NYS Museum in Albany is free. Once a year, they charge a admission for NY in Bloom. As a fund raiser for museum programs, area florists and garden clubs present beautiful displays throughout the museum. By Sunday, the last day of the show, some of the displays were looking a bit droopy, but I was able to find some fabulous blooms in vibrant colors that left me wanting for Spring!

Caboose

Back when a crew to keep an eye on the things, a caboose became the standard last “car” on a train. Red was just a traditional color, and the cupola provided an elevated point of view to inspect the train.
