Wandering around Alonso Martínez (Las Salesas neighborhood) we came across this flower shop and thought Mrs. Dalloway would buy her flowers here. Of course we would do so, too, we would even quit our jobs and become florists just to be surrounded by this at least 8 hours a day. We lost track of time taking pictures (it was hard to stop) and chatting with the florist, who is indeed a wonderful expert.
Margarita se llama mi amor was open a few months ago as a “collateral effect” of a Cacto-Cacto’s success, a flower shop specialized in cactus -actually the only one in Madrid-, a place we love too and that has been in the place next door for years. But there’s something about “Margarita” that makes her unique and special: all kinds of flowers, all beautiful and some of them hard to find somewhere else in Madrid, their arrangement, the light that floods the whole place, the background music, the kindness, the good taste. In addition to cut fresh flowers, they have potted plants for both interior and exterior, vases and pots, and they prepare special arrangements for events and send flowers home.
Really worth coming, entering and feeling in a whole different world, leaving with a good bouquet and a bright smile. Love and flowers, never too much.
Love and laugh if love comes / cry loudly if it doesn’t / diamonds grow nothing / manure grows flowers.”
Fabrizio de André
