i love flowers shops, especially the small high street ones. my favourites are cave on bermondsey street with its mix of chocolates, flowers and wine – what more can you ask for ?, rebel rebel on broadway market, scarlet and violet in queens park. and of course you cant forget the flower market; my favourite thing to do on a sunday morning is a stroll down columbia flower market; it makes me feel that london is part of an extended community – whereby locals, tourists and visitors from all areas of london can participate in a traditional street market – see the locals selling their flowers and wares with their humorous street patter, listen to the numerous street buskers, taste the wonderful beigels, see the traditional pearly queens – where else can you get this all on a sunday morning, come rain or shine – and you can come away with an inexpensive bunch of gorgeous flowers!
