in bloom: a trip to the flower market.

Last weekend I went to the flower market to help a friend pick out flowers for her wedding centrepieces. It involved getting up in the dark at crazy o’clock but was absolutely 100% worth it. We came home with many many bunches of flowers, there is so much choice and it is mega cheap. I spent around $30 and ended up with two bunches of roses, a huge bunch of lambs ear, sunflowers and a bunch of unidentified little white flowers – my friend also got heaps of roses, eucalyptus and some other bits and bobs. We were back at my place with a cup of tea by 8am and spent the next few hours having a major flower-splosion all over my living room.

  1. these are absolutely beautiful photos! my favourite is the shot is teh one of the lambs ear, how incredible soft are the leaves?! I am very fortunate to live a 10 minute walk from the Columbia Rd flower markets here in London, it’s not a sunday if I havent battled the crowds for my weeks flowers.

  3. so fun – i had no idea flowers markets were so much cheaper, I know there is one down in Brisbane which I’ve had on my to-do list for a while – not a fan of waking up early though ๐Ÿ˜›
