Columbia Road


I have just got back from columbia road in the east end of london, it is one of my favorite places to go on a sunday. Me and dad ventured down there about 7am, dads got a few friends that run the flower stalls down there, so its always great to head over and see a few faces. Today i bought a bunch of country cottage flowers to put in my new studio space. Its great having a mum who is a florist she makes the best flower arrangements for the house. I ate lots of cupcakes (left over from yesterday)  and drank lots of tea so far its been a lovely sunday, Mums just about to make a roast and i am in charge of the gravy...best job if you ask me.
would be lovely to know how you are spending your sunday?

  4. I did a similar post a few months back, I love the flower market there and the fox sewing on the window ledge... Sounds like a perfect Sunday. I am sitting with my cat indoors listening to the radio. :) xx

  15. I really want to go there now after seeing those photos, but doubt that'll happen for a long time! I love the fox sitting in the window, so cute ^_^

    Sounds like a lovely way to spend your Sunday. I worked all day, saw some family who've come down to visit and went to a pub quiz!A mixed day.
