Jacqueline Togneri of Plant Specialists has been keeping me posted on progress at the Kips Bay Show House. "(Friday) morning we installed the Christmas Palms at the show house," she writes. "We had to unload the truck on Madison Avenue and push the trees a block north to the building entrance. Watching our crew push the palm trees down Madison Avenue is one of those things you see 'only in New York'. I think we turned a few heads!"
