i woke up extra early this morning and met my dear friend jill at the chelsea flower market (thanks jill for the iphone pictures!).  every morning, monday through saturday, west 28th street between 6th and 7th avenues becomes an urban flower and plant oasis.

as tempting as it is to sleep in and do nothing on saturdays (or basically everyday), i rejected my inner lazy bum.  and now, i have gone to the flower market, sat in a cute cafe and had coffee, arranged my flowers, and posted on my blog, and it isn’t even noon yet.  i have been so productive that i have no qualms about sitting on my butt the rest of this rainy day.

oh btw we went a little photo happy.

the spoils of my trip (i wish i remembered the flower varieties but these kinds of things don’t stay in my brain):
