flowers of london

Katie shared her flowers of Paris, and here are my flowers of London. I couldn't get enough of them. Vic took us to the Columbia Road flower market (and Claire met us there), which I adored, but I think my favourite flowers were the ones growing wild in gardens and in Vic's own glorious, lush, green backyard. I also loved the fragrant flowering tree at the end of her street.

  3. Ah, lovely, lovely flowers and it's always so funny how London looks so much well, better through other people's eyes than my own! Guess I have "can't see the wood for the trees" syndrome. I love the last Vicpic! x

  21. Where were you staying in London? One of the photos on your other London post I swear looks like it could be my street. Which is ridiculous because all of London looks the same really so it probably isn't! xx

  36. These are the most stunning photos. I would love a bunch of those peonies lurking in one of the images!

  37. These are so beautiful - I haven't even heard of that market, but I think I'll make an effort to go next time I'm up in London. You're a much better tourist than I am, I must say, and you managed to take such great photographs of the whole thing too! My favourite is the one of the roses - such stunning colours.

    To be able to buy flowers from a market and carry them home wrapped in brown paper is just a dream of an idea. I envy Vic!
