Because I am cool* and a secret hipster** I wanted to keep you all on your toes and introduce you all to my second tattoo first. In March 2014 I went to my local tattoo parlour with a design I saw online and asked them to ink it on my skin.
Lavender is by far my favourite scent. I love it more than any other, though jasmine is definitely a close second. Last weekend Sister suggested we visit the Mayfield Lavender Fields I was very, very excited. They are only just a little over an hour’s drive from London and more stunning then I thought they would be.
Every Sunday morning Columbia Road overflows with beautiful flowers. There are buckets and buckets full of vividly coloured plants, shrubs, and bulbs. While the market has been going on since 1869 I didn’t even know about it until last week and on the Sunday I headed to their just before it closed for the week.
This post is FULL of images of beautiful flowers – enjoy!
My mum used this day to catch up on some much needed sleep. The rest of us used this day to make sure she could sleep. And we cooked – my Dad and I worked on the mains and Sister on the dessert. And did a little shopping.
