Flower shops are plentiful in neighborhoods all over Copenhagen. Since it’s almost spring, the shops fill their sidewalks with beautiful fresh cut flowers and spring plants. It makes it impossible not to stop and take a look. Danes really have it figured out, they light candles all day into the night and apparently have spring plants and flowers filling their homes. Pretty much a dream come true.
Blomsterskuret is in the Frederiksberg neighborhood of Copenhagen. We came upon it as we walked to coffee at Granola. And Granola is the sister restaurant of the well known (at least on Pinterest) Hotel Central & Cafe. The hotel is tiny– it has just one room. Of course I loved this flower shop not only for their gorgeous display of plants in rustic containers, branches and fresh cut spring blooms, but also because it’s painted black. Everything looks good against black siding–especially pansies.
At another shop in the same area, this lovely display even looks amazing with the contrast of graffiti.
This shop was close to our hotel and every time I walked by I took a photo. On about the third day, Madeline said, “You do know you’ve seen that before, right?”
Can you see why I love this place? I mean candles all day and flowers on the street–everywhere.
Just walking back from the Metro and look at all those pale pink tulips! Spring officially starts next week, but it looks as though it’s in full swing here in Copenhagen! It’s easy to see why the Danes are the happiest people in the world. They surround themselves with fresh flowers, plants and make their nests cozy and a place that brings happiness and comfort. We all need that at the end of a long day and week.
