This year once again Japanese Growers came to New York to show their flowers and what specimens they are! Their specialty being Sweetpeas well one of my favorite things in the world….not just favorite flower but favorite things of all things! They make the simplest, most beautiful bridal bouquets and arrangements, simple, feminine and fragrant. So experiencing a wall of sweet peas and a gift of sweetpeas on the way out was a good day to say the least. The other gorgeous specimens must all be adored, the lysianthus, the orchids, the scabiosa, the gloriosa and the Japanese carnation ( yes I said carnation). All beautifully presented at the Japan Society on 47th Street….a beautiful space it self…worth a look at their site to learn about lectures and ongoing programs there. While my photos are not my best you can still enjoy the photos and now order sweetpeas by name! I wish I could have shared the fragrance with you too!
