April

This post has nothing in particular to do with the month of April...these photos were actually taken the last week of March anyways.  But, here's to just a few left over photos from when I would sit with loving eyes in the center of my studio staring at all my pretty blooms after my first big trip to the flower market. 
Anyways, I went to the SF flower mart again this past Friday and it occurred to me how interesting it is that I have absolutely zero trouble getting up at 4:15am and out the door on schedule however, when I need to get up for school during the week at 6-6:30am it's practically a miracle if I'm able to do so without turning my alarm off and sleeping in too late, thus leaving me rushing to get ready and eating breakfast in the car on the way to campus.

All of the flowers - p a r t 3

Here's to the final floral-full post (for now!).  It's interesting to see how my taste in fleurs change over the years.  When I was younger I loved daffodils.  Then I went on to loving peonies (and still do, they're my #2 favorite).  But, when I first laid eyes on David Austin Juliet Garden Roses via photos online, they immediately took place as my favorite flower ever.  When I first went to the SF Flower Mart and saw some for the first time in person I nearly felt like crying, they're just SO beautiful!
What's your favorite flower?

All of the flowers - p a r t 2

A 6am trip to the SF Flower Mart and a whole day spent arranging.  I've proven to myself that I have no self-control when it comes to flowers.  But, that's okay.  I just really, really (no I mean really!) love flowers.  I'd love to work with flowers as a career one of these days too perhaps.  So, it was nice pretending my studio was my own flower shop where the arrangements were made by me and for me!  With the loveliest blooms ever - Juliet garden roses (my favorite!), peonies, anemones, ranunculus, sweet peas, poppies, amaranthus, eucalyptus, (& some more that I don't know the names of) I was so happy with how everything turned out!  It was hard to not stare at all the flowers any/every second I was at home this past week!

All of the flowers - p a r t 1

Last week during Spring break I finally went to heaven.....aka the San Francisco Flower Mart!  One of my jobs is working for Oakland Supply Co. and last week I got the go-ahead to start making weekly arrangements for the shop!  So a 6am trek into the city with my fancy new wholesale badge to the SF Flower Mart was my mid-week highlight.  After a good couple of hours there (here's to a big thank you to Anthony for helping me carry everything!), and with a total loss of self-control, I went flower crazy.  Back in Berkeley, my studio turned into my own personal flower shop.  First up was the arrangement I made for OSC (see last photo in this post!).  Then after delivering that I spent the whole rest of the day making flower arrangements for myself.  Needless to say, my studio had never looked, felt, or smelt better, and I was in my own little dream-land for sure.  I have a good handful of snaps on instagram already but I took lots of photos w/ my camera this time of all the blooms so I'm splitting them up into three posts.
