Che Bella! Fiori di Pike's Place Market

Palma%20flowers.jpg

I do love the food shops at Pike's Market, but my FAVORITE thing there is the flower stalls! I have been known to take over a hundred flower photos in this two block area, but I tried to contain myself. Here are a few.

I browsed every vendor's booth to choose just the right combination for an enormous bouquet for our hostess, Sheena, for tomorrow's GTG. Here is the arrangement I came up with:

Hi Palma,
This entry about your trip to Seattle is so alive- You gave a real sense of "the happening" of the market and folklore which surrounds it. The various entries read like a mini travelogue. Your blog continues to be my favorite-I always check to see if you have posted a new entry.
A warm hello to you and Brad. BTW, did you get the brochure? Hope so. If not, do let me know.

Palma, the flowers are so beautiful...they take my breath away! Thanks for a wonderful report (anxious to read more and more) and for the lovely photos.Wow!

Palma you did a such a great job of flower selection. I have never seen (let alone received) such a large bouquet!

The flowers were, and still are, beautiful. I think about you and Brad every time I walk through the front hall.

Ida:

Palma ... This is one way I can enjoy the beauty of the flowers without having an asthma attack! LOL. What spectacular colors. I miss being able to have fresh flowers in the house. Lucky you.
