I was in Italy for a good part of September and as always, on the lookout for flower shops, flowers and gardens. People always seemed to have room for something, even if it was just a pot of geraniums, and even in the smallest towns. I did find florists of course, and flowers for sale at the markets. What charmed me though was a flower cart, using the ubiquitous (for Italy) Ape three wheeled vehicles. I so want one of these!
The small hand ties seen at the florist shop reminded me that it doesn’t take much to have a floral impact. I put together these three arrangements for small vases (in this case champagne glasses) when I got home as a memento of that.
