Discovered: The L.A. Flower District

Recently, I traveled to Southern California.  While there, I had the opportunity to visit the Los Angeles Flower District.

I believe almost every flower imaginable is shipped there! Just kidding, I know that isn’t true… but it sure felt like it! Fresh flowers from all over the world arrive (almost) freshly picked.

Some were obviously more recognizable than others! 😉

To think… all these were available in November!

After being purchased, flowers are wrapped in newspaper, often from their country of origin.

Well, I hoped you enjoyed a little taste of my journey through the flower market! I found the whole process fascinating and am super glad I took the opportunity to go when it was offered!

  1. Gorgeous! If you ever want to try watercolor, you’ve got plenty of inspiration here. Beautiful photos. These flowers kind of remind me of animals in a zoo–stunningly beautiful, but removed from their natural home.
