Last weekend I arose before the rooster crowed (OK - maybe it was 8 AM but still early for this girl on a Saturday) and headed downtown to the Los Angeles Flower Mart. It was truly a remarkable experience as I felt sort of like Alice from Wonderland in her Willy Wonka of flower shops. I found blue roses, purple cabbage, queen Anne's lace and most beautiful flamingo-pink ranunculus which ended up gracing every nook and cranny of my apartment for the Pop-Up Art Show. I do say, it is quite a privilege to go spelunking for flowers with friends on a Saturday morning, and I highly recommend visiting this secret downtown garden if you dare to get up early enough. Also, Note to Self: Bring $ - it costs only one dollar to enter but the flower stands only take that cash-money, honey.
