Columbia Road Market 11
I had a big night out last night at The Carpenters Arms after the neighbourhood firework display. Even as I stumbled up the road to the market this morning in a haze, I could overhear the dogwalkers discussing those “Great Balls of Fire” that served as the theme for the display. This explanation all serves as my excuse for not getting to the market until well after 8 o’clock. It was very quiet when I got there, I think the entire neighbourhood is nursing hangovers after entering into the festivities engendered by last night’s display.
With a modest outlay of £3 I bought this tray of six primroses to naturalise in my garden. I remember that primroses grow quite happily in the shade of hedges and trees because that was where I used to pick them when I was a child in Devon. These particular specimens have been “forced” in a polytunnel, which is why they are flowering now but I expect they will quickly revert to a more natural scale in my garden.
