Florals on florals? Why not?
Last weekend I went plant and flower shopping with my boyfriend as we are uncovering our pool, cleaning out our deck and planting new flowers and herbs around it to mark beginning of Spring season in our Barcelona apartment.
I was almost as excited to go flowers shopping as I am when I go shoe shopping. I don’t know why but I get butterflies in my stomach when I enter gorgeous flower shop rich with scents and colors of the beautiful flowers, herbs and citrus trees, I just feel like jumping and throwing myself on the flower bed, and staying there doing nothing the whole day, fragrant, colorful and happy!
“KATARINA! KATARINA!” Ante, my boyfriend woke me up from my day dream. “Did you pick any herbs yet? Let’s get out of here.” He was equally excited to leave as I was to come to the flower shop as wherever he goes basketball fans stop him to take photos and get autographs.
So, at the end of the day we purchased flowers, herbs and deck bushes in the amount of brand new manolos. Jesus! I got two beautiful orchids in pink and white, two huge bushes for the deck, big lavander plant, one nice mentha herb bush, some artificial white flowers for my office and some gardening supplies.
Full afternoon spent gardening on the deck, two broken nails and five cuts and scratches later, I got beautifully decorated deck with my own lemon tree and mentha for green tea in the morning and mojitos in the evening!
Now, let the Spring begin!
