Today Kelvin and I went to the LA Flower District to look at flowers. It was a fun Valentine’s weekend activity. We got sort of a late start, so a lot of the places were starting to close when we arrived. For $1 a person, the flower district is a total steal. It was really fun looking at all the different types of flowers in season, and the flowers were super cheap compared to what they would usually be at a florist or grocery store. Also, you can’t beat the selection. There were rows and rows of different types of flowers in every color imaginable. I really want to go back and visit on an early morning just to see the entire extent of what the flower district market has to offer.
To make things even better, I found free street parking! Saw this fun sign next to my parking spot.
There are two flower markets, the original los angeles flower market and the southern california flower market, right across from each other. The entry cost gets you into both! I recommend the southern california flower market because the prices seemed to be a lot better.
Some tropical flowers we saw.
A huge selection.
A lot of the roses were boxed like this.
Sleepy Kelvin holding the flowers he got me! <3
Since it was Valentine’s weekend, there were lots of roses.
I love that they bag the flowers in newspaper. Here are the flowers that Kelvin got me.
Flower arranging is a lot harder than it looks. I was starting to become obsessive compulsive about the display.
I don’t know what these are called, but I had some extra, so I put them in a jar. The twine is from the newspaper wrap that they packaged the flowers in.
