NY Sidewalk Flowers

 

Flowers can cheer me up and put an extra pep-in-my-step any day!  They can be cut and set out, at two in the afternoon, and the day would somehow feel like a fresh start.

This weekend we were walking around the Upper East Side, headed to Central Park, and we passed by one of the many charming characteristics that make NYC so special, the sidewalk flower shop!  There are so many things in the city that make it feel romantic, charming, and beautiful, and the sidewalk flower shop is one of them.   Always beautifully displayed, sometimes wraped around the corner, with a variety of stunning colors, petals and sizes, and a sweet scent that follows you down the street saying come back, come back.  Ok, maybe it’s just me hearing that, but those outdoor bouquets are quite the eye catcher!  Here’s the shop we walked by this weekend, and the flowers that were calling me back to take their picture.

Love how the flowers wrap around the corner and brighten up the block.  And, don’t worry if you forgot your cash, always an ATM inside!  Who wants to go home to an empty vase?  Unfortunately, last weekend we did, but not today!  On the way home I stopped by a neighborhood sidewalk flower shop and picked up some flowers I don’t normal choose, feeling inspired by something I saw on Pinterest, and this is what I came up with…

Hydrangeas are turning into my new favorite flowers for the apartment - a touch of classic and warmth.  Add a pop of color (I added purple baby’s breath – well, that’s what I’m calling it) and there’s no way a bouquet cannot brighten up and add some cheer to a room!

Do you have a certain type of flower you like to have around the house to brighten your day?  Do tell!

Until next ride,

Amy

    Daisies are not a fancy flower but they always make me smile! Especially gerbera daisies!
