Favorite talk aboutIf you live in New York City—or lurk in common media a small bit—chances are you’ve come across the following weird and remarkable sight: A huge, colorful planning of clear flowers placed at the seemingly random location. Perhaps a larger-than-life bouquet of forsythia and sunflowers broke from an empty city garbage can. Or a mammoth garland of flower draped surrounding a figure with Middle Park.
These installations remain therefore striking, they’ve probably caused you to stop in your tracks. They’ve also possible caused you to consider the uniqueness of the master bandit behind these glorious acts.
The guru bandit, it turns out, is Lewis Miller, a florist recognized regarding his fantastical wedding and gang arrangements. Over the last few months, he with the merry gang of beautifiers have lived stealthily creating exactly what they call Flower Flashes. The objective? And then bring joy to their fellow citizens’ daily commutes. “Gifting flowers to Further Yorkers is a basic idea that I have been thinking about for days,” Lewis says. “I become in the business of dream and flowers, and it’s my mission to transform key times in my clients’ lives into joyful, everlasting memories. I wanted to reconstruct a similar feeling to the daily city-dwellers and visitors of New York City.”

It was really cool to observe people adjusted with adjusted the installation, sometimes by changing the blooms, other age before only using them!”
“Who doesn’t love to get flowers? They are like a luxury, and New York Town is a really gritty, fast-paced town.

To remains my purpose. It’s a really simple vision but strong, I think, to construct a emotional reaction through flowers.”
