We've made a couple of trips this summer to the LA Flower Market. It's a great experience for kids—and for mommies who want a deal on flowers! The Optimist even joined us on one of our trips!
There are all kinds of great things to see. I had great fun choosing wedding reception flowers here several years ago (NOT frog-shaped). But—I didn't choose a reputable florist and he stood me up, so my party had no flowers at all. Can you believe that?! He was a vendor's employee. I should have contracted with a reputable vendor.
Lots of scents, sights and sounds.
Starboy loved the flying toys and tried to convince me we needed to take one home.
A tradition here seems to be giving orchid "lei" necklaces to graduates and students culminating. Fun!
