If there’s something you really want to do, just get up and do it, right? Right. So we got up at 4am on Thursday to go New Covent Garden Flower Market!
We as in Ryan and I, because I love flowers and he loves early mornings (not). I’m very grateful. It was such a cool experience. 70% of London florists get their goods there. You might expect this to be a cheap experience, but I actually went in order to scout out some super high quality flowers that you can’t get at most florists – I ended up with a bunch of Cloni ranunculus, the highest grade ranunculus available, grown in northern Italy, as well as some beautiful orange/blush/white poppies. The Cloni have been totally magical, while the poppies have unfortunately not been great – most of them didn’t make it past day 2. Nevertheless, this has been a really cool experience and I recommend it to anybody. They also sell awesome trendy vases for real cheap. Probably worth going in a group as most flowers are sold in massive bunches so you could divide them up amongst friends.
