bloomin’ marvellous…

well, happy start to a brand-spanking-new week…

today i was hoping to regale you with happy snaps & even happier tales of my ventures out to the columbia road flower market this weekend…

i’ve been longing to go there for eons… i love flowers, i love markets &, miracle of miracles, the sun was shining brightly… what could go wrong?

but truth be told, it wasn’t quite the adventure i had envisaged… after a later-than-planned start followed by an hour & a half traipsing to the other side of london, i arrived late lunchtime only to be heralded by a throng of fellow flower-worshippers & a chorus of “everythink a fiver”

you couldn’t really see much of the flowers for jostling bodies & so it wasn’t long until the lure of a latte & a cheeky bit of window shopping ensued… an hour or so later & i finally found an under-subscribed stall & snared myself a bunch of apple blossoms the height of a baby giraffe {imagine, if you will, the sheer joy i experienced lugging my purchase home on 3 different trains} & headed home…

i’m resolved to trying again another day {early start is the key!}… the atmosphere alone was worth the trek & there’s a veritable warren of homewares shops beckoning to be explored in the surrounding side streets & courtyards…

but until then, i’ll leave you with an image of some heaven-sent blossomy goodness {not unlike those i snaffled up} & a bedside block to die for!
