My glorious-chilled morning shooting a quickie at Columbia Road Flower Market, a sea of tulips in multiple hues of vibrant colours, I gasped in awe.  I stood in silence for a good few minutes to admire their range of overtones and undertones.  I lost 3 heart beats.  Any 3 bunches for a tenner did it say?  I’ll come back later.

    Was this the early morning that you went on the third day of LFW where it was really empty? Smart move, it would be nice to go one sunday when the whole street’s just yours with heaps of flowers 😀

    £10 for 3 bunches is actually not that bad by London standard. BUY IT.

    @The Provoker Yep, fashionistas were absent at the market, I guess they all headed to LFW 😛

    You know Dutch tulips are very expensive in Hong Kong right? They cost about 100HKD a bunch.

    Columbia Rd flower market is one of the best kept gems in London, I was lucky to visit the area when I visited London 3 years ago. If I ever to return again in the near future, the flower market will be the first place to visit.
