Saturday, a sunny warm spring day here on Long Island,  was International Slow Art Day, so I visited the Garden Party exhibit and the outdoor sculptures at the Nassau County Museum of Art.

A few of the pieces I lingered at were the Tiffany Studios lamp Chanson de printemps after Bouguereau, the pink and green rhinestone tulip minaudière, and a bouquet of designer dresses with flower motifs.

And I lay down on the grass to enjoy the daffodils.

NCMA’s Garden Party exhibit, which runs through July 6, 2014, is delightful after our winter of snows.
