Seattle is a remarkable place when it comes to to a lot of things, but I have never been in or for that matter recall being in a city where you can buy dazzling flowers for next to nothing in public markets. My pals Regina and Steve, parents of Sophie, perhaps one of the most beautiful babies of all time, suggested that I head to a couple different street fairs/markets today.
The first was in Ballard, the second in Freemont. Each was a number of blocks long, loaded with all kinds of great food, cheese, organic vegies and fruit, and flowers.
$12 buys you more flowers than I have vases for.
$8 buys you a huge bouquet. And when I was leaving the Freemont market, e.g. not far from the statute of Lenin, I asked a very nice woman, what $4 might buy?
Absolutely spectacular. They are sitting on my dining table. Breathtakingly beautiful!
