We must have been really inspired and/or craving beauty, because my friends Ronnie and Martha and I woke up extra early on a Saturday morning to go get fresh flowers at the downtown LA Flower Mart. It is one of the most fabulous places you can think of in LA and we were so happy that we made the effort and the trip. You do have to get there early though, the earlier the better (they open at 4 am and anytime before 7 am really is the best time and best selection.)
We saw so many beautiful colors and combinations and pretty soon we realized we needed a cart to put all the flowers we wanted to take home. You name it, they’ve got it, if it’s in season and for at least 50% off than you would find something in the flower shop. You can’t beat that!
So make the trip, it’s open every day except Sunday. Take cash and an extra shopping cart and go have fun. You’d be amazed at all the wonderful flowers you never knew existed. Ronnie said it best when she thought out loud, “Nature is beautiful!”
