Is there anything prettier than fresh flowers? In San Francisco recently, it seemed that everywhere I looked the flowers were in full bloom. Even the flower shops seemed full of the most beautiful blossoms I have ever seen! On the way to and from my meeting every day, I passed Nob Hill Florist who had exquisite arrangements tempting me on the other side of huge plate glass windows.
Inside the Fairmont, there was another beautiful florist shop with roses and orchids covering every inch of the shelving and tables…
Even the plants in the outside planters were beautiful! There were the most amazing magenta glads blooming by Grace Cathedral and all kinds of other beautiful horticulture.
There is surely no more beautiful place in the world than San Francisco in full bloom! Whether the flowers are outside or inside, the colors seem brighter, the blossoms seem bigger and they just call out to you to have a great day! There was a popular song in the 1960’s, “If You’re Going to San Francisco, Be Sure to Wear a Flower in Your Hair,” and I agree. Without one, you’ll feel under-dressed just walking down the street!
