Pursuit of the perfect bouquet in London

There’s just something about a bouquet of flowers. They say “sorry”, “thank you”, “get well soon” and “I love you” all in one small bundle of colour. In a league of their own, London’s flowers stands are beyond impressive, so I felt like it was a duty of mine to share them with you!

As if it were a ritual on a sunny, summer’s morning or an intuitive way to inject some brightness into a home on the frequent gloomy days, a visit to the local flower stand is an elegant habit for many Londoners. As if I’ve subconsciously inherited this cultural routine, I have found myself taking numerous pictures of the quaint stands, the exotic boutique shopfronts, and becoming a regular visitor of the Columbia Road flower market. So, with an endless gallery of images, I have chosen some of the best shots, just for you!

If you’re also a self-confessed flower fanatic and have any recommendations for places that I should visit on my travels, please leave your comments in the designated section below. I look forward to hearing your suggestions!
