If you love flowers and plants




and I am guessing that perhaps you do, as this blog is pretty much only about these things, then there is one street to visit early on a Sunday morning:


Columbia Road, London E2

From about 8am until 3pm on a Sunday the street fills with vendors of cut flowers, bedding plants, vegetable and herbs plants, and some more exotics, think giant palms.


The street is narrow  and Victorian and the atmosphere is a lively mix of vendors calling out about their wares, tourists with their cameras P6022030.JPGand serious shoppers focused on getting the best for their money.  The shops that line the street are interesting, quirky and independant. P6022034.JPG

Worth a visit next time you find yourself in London, just be sure to be there on a Sunday morning to see the street at its best.

52 week photo challenge this week is the word street.  I am linking back to Sandra at https://daffodilwild.wordpress.com who is one of the hosts of this meme.
