Thankfully here, unlike with cut flowers, everything isn’t constantly dying. A pure flowerous boutique seems like the most nightmarish of small operations if there isn’t an in-place client base. Slow business day? Half your stock wilted and perished. Another thousand Ecuadorian roses land tomorrow. (fun fact, as of 2005ish: excess cargo space on planes from Ecuador is often filled with roses, which are plentiful and top-quality in and around Quito)

A photographic survey of flower shops sounds like a good time. But not as interesting as a documentation of Asian grocers with their shelves rammed full with cheap goods with nary an English character, battalions of fluorescent plastic bags at the ready to bring the goods home. I suspect they don’t have Facebook pages to lavish attention to detail on.

Unrelatedly, leaning into a cranked-to-three (full power) fan is both loud and highly refreshing. It sounds like going very fast on a bike into a headwind, but when I stand up from this chair I’m not covered in a new skin of sweat and bugs (which tend to swarm above paths on muggier evenings and stick to one’s arms).

Ideas, eventual work.
