Brattle Square Florist is precisely where it's name suggests: Brattle Square in Cambridge. From the outside, it's rather unassuming and I myself have walked past it on several occasions without a thought to venture inside. Last weekend, however, I spent the morning jaunting to and fro about Harvard Square and thus was extra close by.
I was also desperate for tulips. Somehow their presence helps me believe spring is near. So I entered the narrow trove of flowers, delighted with the sweet scents filling the air and the dazzling selection of blossoming creatures. A step inside a place like Brattle Square Florist is like a good dose of medicine. It's ever so relieving to be surrounded by cheerful flowers and that's exactly how I felt in Brattle Square. So after lingering for a good fifteen minutes, I left with my bouquet of red and yellow tulips under my arm, feeling slightly more optimistic than when I arrived.
