Although it shares a street address with a couple of cool-kid clothing stores, Blue Water Flowers is an irony-free zone. A green-striped awning flags the shop and a rose trellis shades its front window. Inside, the dim shotgun space is flanked by buckets of cut flowers (some from France and Holland), topiaries, and the occasional potted orchid. The staff specializes in low, densely clustered arrangements in simple glass ginger jars. Strong-colored blooms are often juxtaposed for contrast, such as twilight-blue hydrangeas with deep crimson roses. Although the store does not have regular hours on weekends, it’s occasionally open when the staff is working overtime.
