after church yesterday, we took a little detour on the way home to peruse columbia road flower market. i was absolutely delighted to find in this place another total wonderland corner of london. i was buzzing with joy the whole time we were there, starting as we walked closer and closer to the market, as evidenced by the number of people on the street with big, brown-paper-wrapped bunches of flowers under their arms.
those couple of blocks of columbia road were packed with colours, scents, beauty and people. we could hardly move faster than a scuttle down the street because it was so crowded. but the atmosphere was so, so exciting and lovely. i just adored it! here’s some photos of the glorious sights we saw – wish i could capture that smell too! (as well as the energy in the air and the accented yells of the merchants and the happy faces of the buyers…)
god is sure an incredible artist!
