Fleur existence

28th November 2011



Call me dumbo and ignorant I never knew flowers grow in cold autumn/winter condition let alone ugly weeds and typical boring house plants, maybe because I’m used to seeing nothing but empty branches and dewed grass in my lifeless garden.

I was meaning to visit Columbia Road Flower Market on past Sundays ago after reading Jen’s post about her adventure, due to my poor health (coughing fit blah blah blah and more blahs) I was unable to go, so a lot of hair pulling and frowning were involved.  Nice wrinkles Kit.



Finally on a Sunday and thank blooming goodness for the beautiful weather, cough free and a couple rounds of botox later, I embarked on an adventure-walk at the flower market with my two lovelies Shini and Alexxsia, seeking odd looking flowers and the infamous fox-masked man in Barbour-ish jacket perch on the windowsill.

Thanks to Shini for the last three gorgeous photos and thanks to Alexxsia for showing us around, great company!

    Kit, your photos are so incredible! Everything looks so beautiful and crisp. I love the second photo. I almost looks like those flowers would clamp onto your hand if you got too close. You three look stunning – as usual! Love that Shini’s got on bold shades (red/yellow), Lexxie is all dark (black/green) and you’re wearing soft milky colours. So beautiful.

    p.s. what’s going on with your nails?? they look cool. xx

    Ha! I was there that day hunting as well but we must have missed each other. The fox in the window gave it away. I’m loving the nail art btw.
