Amsterdam, Floral Beauty

Currently on travel in Amsterdam, I had to start my morning in Jordaan walking the Singel flower canal. I stumbled along the Bloemenmarkt, the worlds only floating flower market.

Bloemenmarkt has roots that date back to 1862, when daily deliveries came by barge. Now by car, this market still boasts some of the freshest and most beautiful Dutch tulips, geraniums and other rare and unique floating finds. 15 other specialty shops reside within Bloehmanmarkt, so you’re sure to find what you’re looking for.

Although its currently around 36 Fahrenheit (brr!!), these beauties survive and thrive even in the colder months. I’ll show you the secrets of the American finds soon enough!
