Greetings from the Big Apple: It. Is. Spring!
“I stuck my head out thewindow this morning and spring kissed me bang in the face” — Langston Hughes
IT. IS.FINALLY. SPRING. The city is a little less grey, a little more blue, and nolonger negative a billion degrees cold. Everyone looks less ready to kill eachother. Not only did I chop all of my hair off in celebration, but I’m choppingoff half of all my clothes in the spirit of warm weather, like this:
(Yep, cutup those shorts as well.)
Butseriously. Here’s what they’ve got going on in Washington Square Park:

STOPIT, NEW YORK CITY. STOP. But actually don’t, because this is just fabulous.
Whilewe’re in the mood for flowers, I wanted to write a bit about a florist thatI’ve walked by a few times and thought “aw that’s nice” and kept walking when Ishould have actually gone in because when I did, I melted. They’re called Adore, and they’re on Lafayette and 2nd St and their flowerarrangements make me MELT.
Here are a few pictures I snapped of some of theirsingle flowers for sale. Just so pretty.
They alsodo terrarium-style arrangements of succulents.
And theentire inside:
Sigh... okay now to develop my hipster photos. Hopefullythere will be some good ones to post!

I love that Tiger is finding little shopstucked away in all the glorious neighborhoods in New York. She’s certainly living up to her moniker,Style Scout. Adore NYC looks like anincredible floral resource. Judging fromthe gallery on their website, they create some really pretty arrangements.
