Flowers at an Exhibition

Just when it seems like it can’t get any colder, just when the wind chill hits sub-zero, just when my fingers are covered with bandages for seven—count ’em—seven ulcers from too much dry heat and bitter temps, along comes the Worcester Art Museum‘s (WAM) annual Flora in Winter exhibit.

A-a-a-a-a-h-h-h!

For four days, the WAM is filled with the scent of roses and hyacinths and peonies and more, arranged by regional floral artists to interpret masterpieces of fine art. It’s a great scavenger hunt through the museum to find each display. Al and I had a wonderful time visiting this weekend, and I hope you enjoy this virtual show of a few of my favorites to brighten your own winter blues.
