A couple weeks ago, I was writing an article for the Buzz about Boston’s local florists. I had the privilege of talking to many shop owners and learning just a little bit about the flower industry and the joys of owning a flower shop. When I called one shop, Olympia, I had a lovely chat with Eileen. I had not had the opportunity to step inside Olympia before writing my article, and she kindly invited me to visit the shop. Last Saturday, I trekked over to the South End in the rain to say hello and thank you. Unfortunately, Saturdays are her day off, but I’m still glad I was able to enjoy the whimsical space and admire spring in the South End.
I’m completely convinced that some of the best adventures are the ones that we aren’t seeking. Sometimes, I like to stroll and enjoy the scenery, with no intention of taking photographs. However, despite the rain, the South End was filled with marvelous flowers, and I was delighted any which way I looked. It was impossible not to stop and snap a photo. Here’s a small collection of the neighborhood in bloom.
Happy spring and cheers to your next adventure!
