Eastern Market Flower Day 2024 : I became a plant mom

Starting my journey as a plant mom is exciting.

It’s not everyday you get a chance to celebrate your journey of becoming a plant mom. So today I am I am going to live it up!

It was a warm, VERY warm Sunday afternoon, my friend and I decided to head on down to the Eastern Market for their annual Flower Day celebration.

At Flower Day, you typically see a bunch of flower and plant sellers selling your spices like Pepermint, Thyme or succulents like cactus.

Then you’ll have artisan vendors selling Detroit themed clothing , or baked goods like breads and cookies.

It’s a mixture of culture and fun for Michiganders all seeking one thing = to buy flowers.

This is my third or fourth time going and I normally go to just soak up the sun, create content and to hang with my friends.

This year I decided to challenge my friend on us buying a plant and becoming plant moms.

Of course we chose the craziest plant and got us both a cacti.

We only paid $3 for it and we definitely thought it was a deal.
