Floral Excess

Prop styling by Susan George  

For a few days last week, it felt like spring—summer, even—which turns the mind toward things that bloom. Flowers are decoration, of course, but some varieties are also quite tasty (and would look a lot better on the USDA food pyramid than the starch group). Whole Foods Market (4 Union Sq. E., at 14th St.; 212-673-5388) sells a posy of different blooms for $4.99 that vary depending on availability but might include orchids, pansies, bachelor’s buttons, or the carnations and chrysanthemums pictured here.
