Chelsea Flower Market

This painting outside the Chelsea Market Building is what was left of the old wholesale flower market in the city. Now the building has been taken over and made into a television studio for The Food Network and NY1, a 24-hour local news channel. There are also numerous gourmet bakeries and grocery stores in the building.

So what is your favorite flower?

l'enseigne et la peinture murale est très belle.
En effet, je me prépare pour le SuperBowl et pour la Victoire des Giants

The sign and mural painting is very beautiful.
Indeed, I am preparing for the SuperBowl and the Giants Victory

Oh, so no flowers at the Chelsea Flower Market? What a shame...

I think my favourite flower is lilac, although I have a soft spot for frangipani because of the scent and the tropical feel!

it's a charming painting. I hope they leave it there.

Favourite flower? I think it's too difficult to answer - so many. Perhaps Rosa Banksia tumbling out of an old tree? It'll be something different tomorrow tho....

I've left a reply for you on yesterday's Menton D.P. Ming.

Nice to see that at least the decoration part is remaining!

My favourite flower? For the moment and at this season of the year... maybe the mimosa?

Shame there are no flowers there anymore.

One of my favourite flowers - Tulips.

Orchids, lilys, and roses are my favorites! I haven't been to the Chelsea market in ages. This reminds me to take a trip down there! I love the flower sign shot.

So, you're walking around Tribeca, and it seems close to Bouley's restaurant...
Flowers? Maybe strelitzia (bird of paradise flower)!
I'll be absent for a while. Meanwhile, leave you with a somehow surprising post at Blogtrotter
Wish you a great fortnight and see you by mid-February!

So nice to think about flowers! We have so much snow in Guelph and I can hardly wait until spring!

My favourite flower is probably the daffodil in spring and in the summer, it's a rose or really anything. I just love flowers.



I would certainly appreciate your posting a condolence message in my blogs today for the wife of a good blogger friend...

I walk by there all the time and I've never even noticed that sign. Hmmm, must make a mental note.

I love daffodils. . .Now, how the heck do those things grow like that?

Jun said...

dun like roses. too "stuck-up", and too overrated for romance.
