Flower Friday brings us these jaunty blooms with a preppy pink & green vibe. The are quite, quite pretty just as they are, but once the magical dance of them opening begins, look out. Each one a little masterpiece.
There is just something I find wonderfully soothing about white blooms. Massed together, they create a symphony of beauty. A quick few snaps yesterday at one of my favorite flower stalls captured both hyacinth and tulips. Wintery whites on a chilly, rainy day but they have me thinking of Spring on this Flower Friday.
The sun was streaming through the shutters so beautifully, creating lines all over the dining room table and illuminating the creamy slightly washed out yellow tulips, almost to the point where they looked like they were being lit from within. Flowers can often have a spiritual quality. These certainly did. They also had a bit of a peony vibe to them. I just had to stop and gaze every chance I could. They are our Flower Friday bloom for all of you to enjoy too.
This Flower Friday brought to you from the John Derian booth at the show earlier this week. Truly, dreamy, right? Walking the aisles of the Javitz Center for a few days looking for shop goods is wonderful and challenging all at the same time. One must look at a bunch of ‘not great’ (ok, sometimes really awful) to find the gems, so when I stumbled into John’s booth to write my order, my heart skipped an extra beat when I spotted these roses in a display. A respite of floral beauty. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did/do.
My oh my, what a sight to see those buckets of hyacinth last week at the Market on a chilly, rainy Seattle Winter day. Pure heaven. Looking at the images while in snowy New York makes me think of Spring on this Flower Friday.
This Flower Friday brought to you from the awesome Ferry Building in San Francisco. An outdoor farmers market in front of the building greeted us as we hopped out of the taxi. The Ferry Building is a ‘must see’ when in the city. The shops & the eateries stellar, the entire place just feels good. It is a visual feast. We had breakfast there and then got on a ferry to Larkspur in Marin to shop for a few hours. The gorgeous day dictating our schedule, the idea of being out on the water for a bit was just perfect. Oh, and these heavenly tulips, oh my! Dreamy in their variation of color and their poetic dance.
My Market strolls have been a little flower light the past months, so I am happy to report that Alm Hill Gardens is back in full swing with bucket after bucket of glorious tulips. While I think of them as a Spring bloom, they make my heart sing even greater on these chilly, rainy days of Winter, injecting hits of energizing color and major Flower Friday happiness.
