If you have been reading my recent posts, you know I am in New York to attend a wedding. fmaI am helping my sister with the flowers for the church and at a pre-wedding luncheon. In preparation for the upcoming event, we made an early morning visit to the wholesale flower market on 28th Street on the West Side of Manhattan. I was just stunned by the volume, variety and quality of the flowers on offer. Thankfully, I remembered to stuff my camera into my jacket pocket and got tons of photos. I won’t put much commentary… just enjoy the following photos (first one is of cut hydrangeas):

Peonies in stunning shades of pink and white…




Roses in the hottest colors of the season…


Calla lillies and boxed amaryllis…

    Ha! Ha! Marketman, the 1 out of 12 does not show in the photos you post. They are beautiful and mouth watering (although there was one dissenting opinion on the suman photo). Well, I guess 1 out of your many satisfied, appreciative and eager readers is not a testimony to your lack of skills in photography.

    I hope you get to post your lily-of the valley photo. Thanks for coming up with such beautiful photos and wonderfully informative posts. God bless you!

    Hi Marketman, I was just in Seattle and went wild over the peonies. Got a few for my hotel room, and it was a great way to wake up in the morning to look at glorious lush flowers instead of the grey rainy sky. I also bought a bunch of sweet peas, a fresh flower that isn’t too sturdy but is a lovely spring bouquet.
    Enjoy your flower shopping spree.

    MM, there’s now G11 to replace your G10. I feel the same thing…..I bought a Nikon DSLR with a 18-200 lens and I am thinking whether to return it and just get a G11.
