The perfect way to spend your Sunday morning in London, visiting the flower market on Columbia road and strolling around Shoreditch and Brick Lane. It has been a bit over a year now since I moved to London and I have grown to love this area so much! If you are visiting London I highly recommend taking the tube to Liverpool street and spending you Sunday admiring the amazing flowers, eating the most delicious bagels and street food and finding great designs on a bargain price. Sundays don’t get much better than that!

As you might guess, these photos were not taken in the last couple of weeks. Even though it has been surprisingly warm in London, the weather is still very Autumnly in the sense that it gets dark rather soon. Also, I am getting a very summery vibe off this photos, might be all the colourful houses?

One of the best things about living in Shoreditch is the easy access to the Columbia Road flower market each and every Sunday. Now that I have also a bigger apartment I can fill with flowers, I have become the crazy flower lady. I usually go for the Hydransia but these Calla lilies are equally pretty, and easier to carry.

// Voihan kukkamarkkinat! Mun uusi ja suuri heikkous on kyllä joka sunnuntaiset kukkamarkkinat jotka sijaitsee aivan liian lyhyen kävelymatkan päässä meidän kämpiltä. Isomman asunnon myötä musta on kuoriutunut varsinainen kukkaintoilija ja meidän kämpässä tuntuu olevan joka nurkassa tuoreita kukkia. Yleensä kallistuin aina kauniisiin ja värikkäisiin hortensioihin, mutta nämä kalla liljat (valkohuonevehkat?) ovat kyllä vähintään yhtä kauniita. //
