The Jongjae Flower Market or.. what I did during my Thanksgiving break..

There is a great flower market across the Han River. Only a subway ride w/ 1 or 2 transfers and then a taxi ride to the market.. but, oh so worth the trip. *I always take a taxi home-- since, I don't want to knock off all the flowers trying to get the flowers and other purchases safely home.

There are buildings w/ live plants, cut flowers, a flower arranging building (so neat to watch them), silk flowers, flower pots, and ribbons and awesome wrapping papers/etc.

I love, love the orchids.. and I didn't buy any this time.. but, I'll go back soon to get some..
*Each of the signs that you see in front of the flower stalls is a different flower vendor. Enjoy my favorite flowers from the market.

What a treat for the eyes! I can almost smell the scents...beautiful colors, shapes, textures. Sounds like a lovely day!

I love this flower market-- each building has aisles and aisles of flowers.. the orchids are always there- but, the other flowers change w/ the seasons.

It smells so fresh and the air is so moist. I'm going back in a couple of weeks to get some orchids for the Christmas season.
