I can't tell you when it began but I could try. My grandma, aunts and even an uncle have always had their hands in the soil. I always thought weeding was a big bummer but only after owning a home and garden of my own, truly appreciated what they were doing(or rather growing).
In honor of my love for all florals and upcoming Valentine's Day, I wanted to take a trip down memory lane and introduce you to some of my favorite floral memories.
Of course, so many things about my time in London were magical...
I would buy myself a $10 bouquet almost every week to keep in my room. It was the most wonderful thing. I still can't believe how you could get a $10 bouquet of a dozen roses and a great mani/pedi for $19 in New York. Those were about the only cheap things in that city.
I was so fortunate to have had such amazing friends and neighbors in Astoria, New York. Me, Farzie and Michelle would drive out to Mattituck, Long Island to spend time on the beach, visit the wineries and shops around town. It was possibly the most relaxing weekends I've ever had. I day dream of our time there often.
As for my love of flowers in recent years, you all are catching it in real time. My love for flowers and planting just keeps on growing. Stay tuned..
