Columbia Road Flower Market

I was thinking about my beautiful wife today when I remembered I had beautiful pictures of some beautiful flowers.

Last time she was here we went to the Columbia Road Flower Market, a place that’s off the beaten path as far as tourists are concerned, but a nice place to see an authentic slice of east end life.  Every Saturday Columbia Road turns into this:

The market is mostly staffed by east end types who hustle their wares with Cockney accents.  This is about a 20 minute walk from my house.   Number of socks-and-sandals American tourists in attendance?  Zero.

On with the show:
