In my last post, I mentioned that I really wanted to check out Chelsea's flower district on our first day in the City. But since Joseph surprised me with a bouquet of gorgeous white roses, there really wasn't a need to rush over to get flowers. I ended up going by myself at 6:30am to check out the area.
The Chelsea Flower District spans a block (I thought it was bigger, haha) with gorgeous bunches of flowers scattered everywhere. There were flowers I had never seen, and I actually wanted to get some to add to the rose bouquet but they didn't show the prices anywhere and I was too lazy to ask the shop owners for the prices. Ah well.

Anyway, we stayed a block away from Times Square at Hilton Garden Inn. It was a fairly standard hotel, with the only lure being its prime location as we were close to so much attractions on our list. Unfortunately, our stay there didn't start off very well.
You see, Joseph was trying to surprise me with flowers as I had mentioned several times that I really wanted to go to the Flower District on our first day as I really wanted fresh flowers in our hotel room for the duration of our stay. Little did I know, he had called the hotel and set up the flower surprise. The hotel called him while we were waiting for our room to be ready and said everything will be ready within half an hour, so he basically had to keep me entertained until that time.
Forty minutes later, we headed to the room and everything looked set... except the flowers. He was so disappointed.
Eventually, the flowers and mini cupcakes did arrive, and they were gorgeous.
