Spring Flowers From the Greenmarket

By Brooklyn Bill

Like Stash and hungry rabbit, spring makes me think of certain foods, especially fresh produce from the Greenmarket. But I'm also delighted this time of year with the reappearance of gorgeous, locally grown flowers.

I'm usually loyal to a family of flower growers from Burlington County, New Jersey, who come to my neighborhood Greenmarket at Grand Army Plaza. The past couple of weeks, though, I've been stepping out on them and buying my bouquets at the Union Square market. Don't tell 'em.


Narcissus. These were advertised by the farmer as mildly scented, and they do have a nice perfume along the lines of hyacinth, only much more subtle.
