Flowers, Flowers Everywhere!

If you have ever read my blog you know my favorite things are flowers, gardening, reading, knitting and making jewelry. I got up early this morning and I was surfing the web and found a picture of some flowers at the NYC Flower Market. I decided to google NYC Flower Market and I found some beautiful pictures that I'll share with you in a little bit. I used to live in northwestern NJ until 6 yrs. ago when John and I moved to Charlotte, NC. We used to go into the City quite frequently but I cannot say I ever got to the Flower Market. I have heard about it and read about it and always wanted to go there. Some day I will go there! Here are some beautiful pictures I found that I would like to share with you! Enjoy!


Here's a small section of the Flower Market-look at all the gorgeous, beautiful flowers!


More flowers waiting to be purchased.


Look at all the gorgeous, rich blue flowers! I would be in heaven if I was there!!


Hydrangeas are one of my all time favorite flowers. When I saw this picture I just wanted to reach in and grab a bouquet for my table!!



This picture was actually from the Martha Stewart website. Martha said these Juliet roses are her favorite. They could be my favorite too!

Hope you enjoyed your little tour through the Flower Market. If you live in NYC or anywhere there is a flower market I would go there and see all these beautiful treasures. It is like looking at a jewel box! Everyone have a great weekend!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
