Urban culture - #102


"Ah, I'm so glad that you are promoting women's businesses and interests", wrote Kate a while back when I blogged Gloria et Odile.

She'll be well pleased with this one, then,

This is Doris Urban, who is/was a teacher in real life and has a tiny flower shop behind a gate to an alleyway off the main road in Gonsenheim, one of the notier (as in $/€/£ notier) suburbs of Mainz.

She only opens a couple of days a week and does fine flower bunches (that don't droop after a few hours), has larger plants, such as hydrangeas for the terrace and a good range of terracotta pots from Impruneta in Tuscany.

And she's pretty cool, too.

Yes, a very cool woman! A teacher and a florist are not so far apart since both concentrate on bringing forth the best in their subjects. Growth and beauty--lovely!

One could say, they both like to see their charges blossom....

Nicely done. Interesting story behind the picture too.

I didn't do much today but...

I did write about how people used to wear long underwear over winter or until we began to stink. You can find the link at the bottom of the post today.

I liked reading about it. It would be wonderful to work in a flower shop all day.
