Little London Escapes: Spitalfields City Farm

Walk down Buxton Street from Brick Lane and you’ll find yourself face to face with grazing sheep and horses and a lovely garden. Spitalfields City Farm is the closest to the Square Mile and a nice little escape from the bustle of the markets. Here’s some pics.

Sir John, Famous Flower Seller of London


This is “Sir John, famous flower seller of London”. After I took this photo, he smiled at me and asked if he could take a photo of me. He handed me his bucket of flowers and positioned me in front of his friend’s horse. He asked where I was from and told me about his hip replacements (He’s 61 and it runs in his family). After that, he asked me out for coffee. When I politely declined, told me I was “very beautiful” and handed me a pink rose and wished me on my way.
