I realized it has been some time since I have put any pictures up from the Great Hall at The Met. After a change of scenery from a short trip out of town, I returned to find the colors of autumn surrounding the hall - a change from the tropical leaves and flowers from the weeks before - and was reminded that these enormous arrangements are always a force when ushering in the new season...
Much in the same way a change in wall color or a bedspread will alter your feelings towards your own home, these enormous flowers in their fall color scheme ease me into the coming months. I am finally getting over my addiction to the heat of summer and coming around to joining those already anticipating the wonders of fall.
The city's trees and all those throughout the Northeast will soon be bringing this same sensation across our entire landscape as if they, too, had received a mandate from the Met's flowers.
