Flowers are Taking Bloom at The Whitney
Even though spring is less than 24 hours away (tomorrow at 1:32pm), The Whitney already has flowers taking bloom. BIG flowers. With some creative help from The Parade Company (the same crew that created the Whitney’s Valentine’s Day heart) The Whitney now has a handful of gorgeous yellow and red tulips in its front yard- SEVEN FOOT TALL tulips to be exact!
“Soon after we showcased the heart for Valentine’s Day we realized that we needed to start thinking of something for spring. An Easter bunny…no; an umbrella for April’s showers…no; May’s flowers…YES! This city and everyone in it needs some sign of spring and sunshine,” said proprietor Bud Liebler. “So that’s exactly what we’re giving them…a reason to smile when they stop in or pass by The Whitney and take a gander at those gorgeous big tulips. Spring is here. That means The Whitney gardens can’t be far behind.”
