New Covent Garden Flower Market

I finally made my way down to the New Covent Garden Flower Market yesterday morning. It's a wholesale market located at in Wandsworth just south of the river from Pimlico. Since it's meant for trade, it opens at 3am on weekdays, and 4am on Saturdays. I aimed to get there at 8am but only found myself at its doors at 9am. *sheepish look* By then, most of the vendors had packed up and only a handful of stalls were still open. Nonetheless, I still managed to score an armful (or rather a whole box) of flowers - hydrangeas, roses, calla lilies, ammi majus, eucalyptus etc. Arranged most of the flowers into a large display. I'll need to get some florist foam so I can do a more structured arrangement next time. Plus I have to wake up earlier!
