One thing we have a TON of around Union Square is flower stands, there are about 5 in a 5 block radius on either side of you at any time. It's freaking fantastic! Yesterday a colleague of mine and I ventured out for a walk and I just had to look like a loony for few minutes to kneel down and snap some quick photos of the flowers.
I had to use my iPhone and they are blurry as a result, but I still think they look semi cute enough!
The flowers themselves were simply too close to perfect to not share with all of you. I wanted to pick up one of the buckets and run, but because I only worked out once this week and didn't think I would make it very far without dropping it, tripping over my own feet, or smashing into an unsuspecting tourist, I decided against it.
My colleague asked why I was kneeling on the gross SF street corner (Stockton ST for those that like specifics) to take photos and I told him it was so I could send some digital flowers to everyone who reads my blog. Sounds ridiculous I know, and being that my colleague is a man, he gave me a quizzical smirk and didn't ask any further questions.
So, for you, beautiful, friendly person reading (and hopefully twirling) at this moment, these are for you, from me! I wish I could hug you wherever you are today, and say THANKS for hanging out with me here once in a while. But since I can't I'm sending these in my place. I hope you like them and know they were meant for you!
This last one means a lot to me and it's for a new adorable blogging friend of mine Allison! Check her out on Less of Allison. She has helped inspire me to start preparing to run my first 5k. I saw this one hanging from a tree as we crossed Union Square.
