Like a kid at Christmas

I enjoy going up to New Covent Garden and Columbia Road flower markets, but getting flowers delivered for the first time was exciting. I felt like a kid at Christmas. Even though I knew what I’d asked for, it was still fun to open the boxes, cut off the tape that stopped the flowers moving about during transit, and peer inside each paper-wrapped bunch.

These pinky-orange Miss Piggy roses smelt good enough to eat. And all of the flowers looked like delicious pick ‘n’ mix! Below are mixed dahlias, Zebra chrysanthemums, and Shine spray roses. I thought the Zebras might be too overpowering to mix with other flowers, but they weren't; they were like tiny, colourful daisies...and I do like daisies.
