I never knew how much I love flowers until our spring trip to Fukuoka. True, it’s not a necessity but just looking at flowers instantly make you feel happy and positive.
That is why, I have made it a point to put fresh flowers on our table every week since three weeks ago.
On the first week, I visited the ultimate flower market that is Dangwa. All sorts of flowers from imported to local, all sorts of foliage big and small as well as fillers, vases and containers are there.
I bought a glass cyinder vase for PHP 180 and asked one stall to do a flower arrangement for PHP 300 all in. I was quite happy with the gerberas , roses and snapdragons and it lasted until Thursday.
The following week I visited the Market Market flower stand as it’s closer to where we are staying. The choices are varied but not as daunting as that in Dangwa.
I have asked a stall to make me any arrangement for PHP 300 and they did a colorful arrangement of malaysian mums, carnations and snapdragons on a clay pot. This arrangement lasted longer, only problem was that my kids kept getting the mums and snapdragons for their own arrangements and also for my son’s crush 🙂
For this week’s flowers, I decided to get a couple of hydrangeas. I was hesitant ar first even if it’s my absolute favorite only because I thought they wouldnt last a day. The kind lady at the flower stall said that all it needs is a good soak and they’ll be beautifully blooming again. True enough, after a good one hour of soaking , my hydrangeas look as vibrant as when I got them.
I couldn’t stop looking at them! One day, I am going to have my own flower shop and brighten people’s lives 🌹🌷🌼🌸💐🌻🌺
