New York --Park Avenue is known for its floral displays, whether they are Christmas trees in the winter or tulips in the spring.
Those of us who stroll down Park Avenue in this winter may notice a larger than life rose display, along with giant ladybugs, beetles, and bees. The only thing is that these roses don't have any scent and are up to 25 feet high.Will Ryman's "The Roses" will be on display from 57th-67th streets until May 31st. The flowers were made from fiber-glass and steel, and took Ryman just over a year to make. Ryman certainly added a touch of color to winter this year. ---
