We have wanted to sell flowers outside our Bruton Street store for quite a while now, and with spring in the air, and a glorious sunny day, we decided that today was the day!
I love going to Covent Garden Flower Market early in the mornings, it feels like secret London. The flowers there today were stunning, great boxes of ranunculus, daffodils and heavenly scented roses. Rows of rosemary bushes, bay trees and tumbling ivy make it so hard to decide what to buy for the shop.
Having found an old apple crate to put the plants in I was drawn to geraniums/pelargoniums as ever, see previous posts, and then added a tray of the prettiest lilac violas.
So if you are in the area, do pop into the shop and pick up a little pot of spring flowers for your desk, window sill or garden...
