columbia road flower market!

columbia1

Have I mentioned it before? Maybe yes, maybe not but when I grow up I want to be a florist. So the flower market is probably one of my favourite places in London to study my impending profession. There is no school on Sundays but there is the Columbia Road! The street is transformed into an oasis of foliage, flowers, bulbs, herbs, shrubs, bedding plants and everything you might need for the garden. I find my spot in that scent mess to be closer to my dream job, and to be honest I won’t mind doing it forever!

me & my pet / 5

dolly1

When Dolly was a tiny cute puppy, Kallia was 5 years old. From the very first time they created a very strong bond as they were the youngest members in the family. Today Kallia spends most of her time at home, playing or keeping company with Dolly.

” I think having Dolly in my life was a scoop ! She is so calm and sweet and i feel very lucky to have such a loyal friend who helps me with my homework!”

“When we feel bored or tired we take together long walks at the nearest park or we walk down to the beach! She loves to hang out with other dogs and cats and she immediatly becomes very social and energetic when we close the backyard door.”

” I have tried to train her in many ways but she sometimes gets a bit stubborn so at least I’ve given her the freedom to lie on the floor when i order her to sit! That’s ok Dolly, isn’t it? “

” I think she is going wild when she catches the scent of her baseball in the atmosphere! Nothing that complicated, I throw the ball and she brings it back, but it has to be a baseball one, otherwise she says i’m out of the game!”

” My delicacy, is Dolly’s delicacy! Tons of peanut butter on a slice of warm bread, fresh from the oven. Because she is not allowed to build this kind of habits, i eat mine sneakily.”

“For me, Dolly is the sixth person in the house. She always livens up the atmosphere with her presence even the times she’s quiet and sleepy. That’s my dog, and i presume that’s a common feeling for every dog owner, but it’s so special that’s always worth sharing!”
