"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.
