.....yes, I want to fill every room with the sweet scent of spring blooms and the unexpected burst of colour a jam jar stuffed with vibrant perky stems provides. Don't get me wrong, I am not into stuffy, prissy starched arrangements, no I am after the spriggy, shaggy, tumbling sort of posy that is thrown together with the confidence of a great artist.
I think the nicest gift a girl could ever receive is a year of flowers delivered to her door, seasonal posies to lift our spirits and brighten our days. This is of course a very decadent thought and I suspect diamonds may come cheaper!
I think in order to satiate this craving of mine I must take a virtual trip to Columbia Road Flower Market, I hope you can come too?
First we need to head over to the East End
This illustration is by Lucinda Rogers~ I am such a fan of her work, you may have seen some of her paintings in Country Living Magazine?
Open House is a brilliant shop we must call in here...
But first let's admire the flowers
I do feel better for that! Perhaps one day I will have buckets of flowers delivered to my door. Until then.....
A tiny garden posy in a mustard jar will do just as well.
Have a lovely week
