it’s unbelievable

i guess this is my second favorite thing about new york…the wholesale district for flowers and plants. it’s heaven on earth and makes new york a soft and pretty city! flowers are an obsession for me especially here, the variety is amazing and when you see them all together it’s intoxicating…

    Flowers are one of my favorite thing about New York too!! (Besides being able to get Chinese Food delivered whenever you wish–which is so not the case out here in suburbia!) My friends mom lived on the upper West Side and I would pray for an invitation to visit in the Spring just so I could see and smell the flowers!! How fortunate for you!! Enjoy!!

    It’s so funny that my favorite colour is burgundy, yet my eye is always drawn to the pink flowers.. :)

    Hi Claudia, I bought a scrapbook (featuring 16 or so sepia tinted photos of a young blonde gal and journal scraps (vintage of course) from you some ago, and am tickled that I found your blog tonight…and those flowers…oh how I would love to bury my face in them!

    I’m left speechless…
    I can catch the scent wafting clear to Chicago

  11. Amy replied:

    Awh, Claudia! I have those days here, too. Hope this weekend is fab enough that it makes up for a few days ago! xo!

    ‘Intoxicating’ is a good way to put the feeling you get at the flower markets, surrounded by masses of blooms. Love that salmon-y pink tone of the blooms in the second pic, gorgeous!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures of the flower market. When I visit my local floral wholesalers and walk into their giant coolers, the sights and scents are so wonderfully overwhelming it’s enough to make a grown woman cry. ;0)
    Thanks for posting the lovely pictures, I too, can smell them from here.
