Beacon Hill’s Charming Flower Shop
Hello, Everyone…I hope you and your family are safe, healthy and making the best of this unprecedented time. The whole world is experiencing challenges like never before. The global pandemic has disrupted our lives in ways we didn’t think could be possible. Two months ago, we didn’t hear the words, “social distancing” or “flattening the curve”.
Consequently, we’ve all had to adapt to uncharted events unfolding at a rapid pace. Amidst the turmoil, there will always be beauty in our surroundings—especially in Boston.
So, I’m going to be posting pictures of Boston and take you on “virtual mini-tours”. There will be educational content as well as fun facts. I just love it when my clients say, “I didn’t know that!”
On the first day of spring, I’m choosing to highlight Rouvalis Flowers, my favorite flower shop on one of the most scenic corners of Beacon Hill. Back in 1897, it was the neighborhood butcher shop. The original meat refrigerator is now filled with gorgeous flowers imported from the Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa, and South America. The original copper ceiling was preserved and restored to a silver finish.
One of the things I love most about Rouvalis is how much it reminds me of a European flower shop. It’s always a nice surprise to see its ever-changing colorful flowers and plants displayed outside the charming storefront. Step inside and the scent of fresh, exotic flowers is….well, you’ll just have to go and find out for yourself.
