My dear friend Isa is travelling around the world making videos as she goes. Here is a little one she very kindly made about me:
Sunday is the best day in London as its when the Columbia Road Flower Market takes over said street. My comrades were a little tired and became somewhat overwhelmed by the number of people and the yelling of the stall holders, but I basked in it.
The same weekend we visited renowned florist Rebel Rebel, who had a truly beautiful selection of blooms on display and some gorgeously overflowing bouquets out the back waiting to be taken to some special event or other.
Next month one of my closest friends is getting married and I am helping with the flowers. Last weekend we went to the markets to get an idea of what will be available and make some decisions about the style she wants for the bouquet and arrangements (and flower crowns for us bridesmaids!). Any excuse to get to the markets really.
The bright pink peonies were in full bloom. Too late to buy them but the perfect time to enjoy their splendour. I bought some younger dusty pink ones instead.
