Flowers for Valentine’s Day

I wish I had my camera with me this morning when my husband Dave and I went to the Boston Flower Exchange.  It was a beautiful and cold morning.  We tip-toed out of the house at 6am hoping to not wake our sleeping baby or our two dogs (whom we often refer to as “the ponies” — Mercer Mayer and Ferdinand — both Newfoundland mixes).  It is always an adventure, Valentine’s Day or not.  This also marks our 8th year in business after having opened FloraLatte on February 8th, 2003. I was really happy to have Dave’s company today — we were both sad to know we would not be seeing our good old friend Mr.Tim Porter at the market who miss so much! 

I did have my camera when we got back to the studio and I am excited to share some of the flowers I will be designing with this weekend in celebration of Valentine’s Day!  Proff spring is not too far away.

I just wish you could smell them too!
