spring flower vases

Since a few months there is a new flowershop in the neighborhood where you can buy flowers by the piece. That is great. They seem to have nicer flowers than elsewhere. There are these old-fashioned cottage flowers, field flowers and parrot tulips you can see on classic paintings. The shop has no windows, just a warehouse door open to the street when the shop's open. Find it at Gerard Doustraat just past het Gerard Douplein.

I filled some of my vases and combined them with flowers from my own garden. The bottom vases have stacked compartments like the tulip vases from the 16th century.
