hyacinths

i love flowers shops, especially the small high street ones.  my favourites are   rebel rebel on broadway market,  scarlet and violet in queens park, wild at heart,  jam jar flowers 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!
