Flowers, Flowers, Everywhere: A flower Girl Explores the Mediterranean, Part 1: Venice

I’m lucky enough to have a gracious boss who allowed me to take two consecutive weeks off work. My sweet grandmother took me and 8 other grandchildren on a Mediterranean cruise from Venice to Barcelona to instill in us the “wander lust” that she has—and I can tell you, she succeeded victoriously. What I realized after landing in Venice, our first port, is that no matter how many days I am out of the office, my “flower hat” as Margot calls it, is a permanent fixture. It always keeps my ears and eyes open for anything floral… in gardens, fresh arrangements, fashion, or art.  Flowers are everywhere—including the Mediterranean—and on this surreal trip, I couldn’t help but take notice!

Here are some of my favorite floral shots I took in Venice, a romantic maze of lagoons, gondolas, and surprises around every corner.

Venezia, ti amo.
