The LA Flower District is a floral wonderland smack in the heart of downtown. Lucy and I met in Los Angeles a few months ago to hash out some “business stuff” face to face. Early the next morning we made an excursion to this delightful place where we shot a few videos for you. Get ready because there are lots of beautiful cut flowers coming your way.
My senses were firing full speed ahead in no time. The sights, the smells, the textures and the colors had me wide awake in no time. It’s the largest floral district in the USA, covering a 6 block area packed to the brim with flowers, plants and supplies. We visited the LA Flower Market and the Southern California Flower Market – the 2 oldest establishments in the district.
Let me show you flowers & more flowers:
We have lots of cut flower growers just 10 minutes south of where I live in Santa Barbara but their greenhouses are scattered about. And, I see lots of flowers at my farmers market every week all year long. But to see all these scrumptious flowers together in a couple of places is a real treat. Oh how I love flowers! How about you … are you a flower child too?
I love Lisianthus, even the buds are beautiful.
It was predawn & even without my morning tea, all those blooms had my eyes wide open in no time!
