May flowers

I really liked these simple flower arrangements at the Rotterdam Swan Market “lifestyle market”. A lifestyle market sounds a bit strange… But it ended up being really wonderful …. A lot of stalls, with fun, high-quality art, clothing, and food.

Before living in the Netherlands, I didn’t think about flowers much, or consider flower arranging to be anything special. Now I’ve had a little experience, and I realize…. Flower arranging is hard! Getting the right combination of flowers cut to the right lengths, arranged the right way in the right vase… In an original manner… This is difficult! I would like to take a class in flower arranging someday. Hopefully in Japan :)

I was accompanied at the market by the lovely Maddie White, Kiwi by birth and German Frau by current country of residence.
