Flower Girl

March 26, 2011

Saturday started with Starbucks, and fortified by morning java, my personal flower girl Teresa brought me to the flower market in Chelsea.  I hadn’t been since the early morning runs for my mother’s flower business in high school.  No longer a huge series of connected warehouses there is now a single street with shop fronts- […]
