now that it’s “officially” spring (though i’m convinced we never truly had a winter), i can’t get enough of fresh flowers. i find myself pouring over the floral display at trader joe’s on S and my weekly visit, admiring the bouquets of cheery daffodils and pastel-colored tulips, and on our most recent stop by home depot’s garden department, i swear the smell of potting soil had me giddy. what is it about spring blooms that just makes life a little more happy?
recently, i’ve found myself smitten with a specific plant, not necessarily readily available at the neighborhood flower stand. the beautiful blooming bougainvillea. everywhere i look it seems, they are climbing trellises and perched on pergolas, adding pops of color in every shade of pink. in fact, there is a bougainvillea plant in my very own neighborhood whose fuchsia petals are simply stunning this time of year. in stumbling across a recent article on camille styles featuring the team from darling magazine, i also realized what a great backdrop it would be for a future outfit post (note to self, do a photo shoot soon).
i’m curious, what’s your favorite spring flower?
