The Flower Lady

This is Myrtle, the lady who owns the flower house on Beverly Street, a house I have been obsessed with for years. I met her by chance and got to see the inside of her house when I helped her carry shopping bags, which she was lugging around in the sweltering heat. She lives right up from downtown and walks down to the thrift stores all the time. Her ENTIRE house is covered in fake flowers, stuffed animals, figurines, vases, pictures, statues, etc.
It is the most awesomely interesting house I have ever seen. She is 83 and has lived there for 15 years.
And of course she has flowers in the built-in vase on the dashboard of her Bug.

  1. Friends of mine used to live in an apartment across the street from her. They would see her watering her fake flowers. Too cute!

  2. I just stumbled upon this blog and saw this; I had only dreamed of the glory that only lay within the doors of this house.
