Brooklyn – Boerum Hill
362 Atlantic Ave between Bond and Hoyt Sts
The life of a flower may be fleeting, but the intoxicating smell of this floral boutique seems eternal. No emphasis on exotic buds flown in from faraway lands here; owner Phoebe Crary prefers homegrown picks like anemones from Dutchess County. The custom-made bouquets at any price are based on these local blooms; delivery minimum is $50, but they'll do a lovely $25 bunch if you're a broke-ass walk-in. Popping your head in for a fragrant whiff, however, is absolutely free.
