the market

it's a bitterly cold day in new york but i went to market this morning in the hope of finding some inspiration.  what's on my mind, you ask?  well, valentine's day of course!  here are some snaps from my morning adventure.

ranunculus.   they're pretty much available year-round.  i love them in a bunch.

anemones.  so much personality.

lovely lilac

orchids.  the perfect gift.  i love them potted, with few exceptions...

an exception.  these look beautiful arranged.

i really want to create a design with hyacinth, especially the coral one on the right.  
the color is amazing in person.

 calla lilies.  elegant and romantic.

rainbow of tulips

unopened peonies...so worth it


sweet peas.  i think they're very flirtatious.  you don't need many for impact.



  1. I agree with you on that exception! Lovely pictures.

  2. Excellent blog you have here.. It is onerous to search out high-quality writing like yours these days. I really respect folks like you! Take care!!
