Amy Merrick Bouquets! In the West Village! Today!

{Happy Valenthymes, Muggles}

If you're in New York today stop by Castor & Pollux (238 W. 10th St between Bleeker and Hudson in the West Village) where the divine Amy Merrick has set up shop from 12-7 and will be putting together her beautiful bouquets for $25. I'm headed there m'self momentarily. (P.S. have you seen her new website? Holy moly.)

Picture above of my beautiful sister Grier from this past summer in the old walled garden on the farm. All our dahlias are from the beloved D. Landreth Seed Co., which you should click over to this very minute and place your order for spring dahlia tubers. Or send some to your mom for a late Valentine's Day prezzie, which is precisely what I just did. (So much for surprises!) I'm a sucker for the giant dinner plate dahlias and the wee pompoms: breakout,  Clara Huston, and Valley Porcupine.  Heaven, I tell you.



  1. Those flowers look beautiful. I love your dress! xo, rv


  2. How lucky you are to swoop up a divine Amy Merrick bouquet. (or boo-kay if you're feeling fancy.) That's a lovely pic of your sister.

    Have a love-filled Valentine's Day, Lily!


  3. That sounds like a perfectly wonderful Valentines treat. Her site and work is GORGEOUS!

  4. dinner plate dahlia might be my new roller derby name.

  5. What a lovely photo of your sister! I almost looked at those flower links, but it felt sacriligeous - borderline porno - to look at flowers like that in the Antarctic.

  6. I don't know if this will make you sad or happy, but I'm hoping for happy: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/things-that-make-corgis-happy?utm_campaign=socialflow&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=buzzfeed

  7. So glad you guys are on board with my dahlia obsession.

    DINNER PLATE DAHLIAZ, which a z, Lauren.

    Kate- clearly I'm the token corgyn lady, because after you sent that link I got it from like ten more people in my inbox. LOOOOVE.
