First a THANK YOU!
Before blabbering something silly about buying too many roses and my toes nearly chipping off with the cold, I just want to thank you all so SO much for your lovely, supportive comments about my dear friend on my post below. I never expected so many condolences and I really appreciate them. If you would like to show your support in a way that truly will help others, we’d be absolutely delighted if you to donate a penny or two to our charity remembrance page. Thank you a million times to those precious people who have done so far despite not knowing my beautiful friend. On to Columbia Road…

My First Time at the Flower Market!
Related to my previous post are the stunning roses that I had picked up here on Columbia Road where me and my lovely gaggle of giggling girlies wandered up and down, buying pretty blooms and thawing out in Lily Vanilli’s cafe in an attempt to drink the cold out of our bones. It was such a lovely day out, all gossiping, snapping and ending in The Breakfast Club, the pancakes which quite frankly MADE the day!
I splurged on stunning roses that looked like the head of the flower had been lightly dipped in orange dye so as to create an ombre effect on each petal. A pot plant for my mum and an ‘oh go on then, I’ll get another bunch of roses’ later, I was pretty laden with plants! It made a change from the last time I was on the same street when there was not even a petal in sight! Barely a single boutique along Columbia Road is open outside of the weekend so make sure you get down there when it’s on for some fab flowery bargains!
I’d highly recommend taking a look at StyleSlicker too, Kit always takes the most stunning shots of her floral finds to inspire you on what to purchase.
There’s quite a severe lack of actual flowerage in this post. Probably, mainly, definitely due to the fact that I moronically formatted my picture card before uploading my photos (massive Blogger brownie point deduction right there!) Using PhotoRec, I managed to suck the second half of my snaps out of the abyss – boxes of flowers omitted. It’s lucky though as Kristabel, Carrie, Olivia and Dunya have all made up for it with beautiful snaps of their fave blooms – take a look!
