Went up to the wholesale flower district (6th Avenue and 28th Steet) very early on Wednesday morning
to discover the Empire State Building lurking in a puddle
and gigantic almost whole bushes of hydrangeas
and packages of hosta leaves
pretty much everything in huge packages --for example $250 worth of peonies at one shot...
managed to buy white roses, peonies and lianthus at quite a modest price.
Later in the day walked to Union Square vie 7th Avenue where there was this rather spooky shop window.
At Union Square there were lupins....bliss.
In the evening I 'did' the flowers for a wedding shower and was rather pleased with my efforts.
