Roses

We were not able to get to Columbia Road this morning... luckily our green hydrangeas and pink peonies from last week are still going strong.

But this has given me the opportunity to post a few photographs of some absolutely beautiful South African roses which we saw at Few and Far on a recent visit. At £3 per stem, I had to make do with these pictures only!

Few and Far is an ecclectic shop full of beautiful trinkets for the home, jewellery, clothing, vintage toys and quirky stationery, among other things, and items are available in limited quantities... hence the name. The shop is the work of Priscilla Carluccio... married to Italian chef and restauranter Antonio Carluccio... she is also sister to British design legend Terence Conran.

Are those flowers real? They kind of look like some amazing real flower and kind of look like some really good fake flowers!

Faz... they are real, and they were so so beautiful... I'm not a huge lover of roses, but these were almost like peonies... really lovely!

I think these give peonies a run for their money - amazing
