A couple of weeks ago I took a long weekend trip to Pasadena to visit my youngest daughter Bethany. It was so great to spend time with her and to soak up some warm southern California sunshine. Bethany had a weekend of “things to do” and “places to eat” planned out for me. One of those things was the L.A. Flower Market. We walked through acres and acres of live flowers and it was fantastic. Are you ready for some floral loveliness?
The L.A. Flower Market was phenomenal! I’ve shown you pictures of just one shop, the original market, but there are several smaller shops, many with complete arrangements available for immediate purchase. We weren’t allowed to take pictures but I have one arrangement “in my head” that I’d like to try (hydrangeas, roses and moss). Yes, it is because of people like me that pictures aren’t allowed! We walked through several of the artificial flower shops as well where some of the flowers were hard to tell apart from the real thing. I purchased some artificial flowers to bring home with me because the prices made them too hard to pass up!
Our final stop was at a street vendor in the market where we enjoyed grilled, bacon wrapped hot dogs with all the trimmings. Onions, tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, ketchup and mustard. Wowsers! I’m already planning a BBQ at my house where we’ll serve these delicious L.A. Hot Dogs!
What a perfect topper to an already wonderful day and just the beginning of my weekend fun (more posts upcoming).
