Yesterday morning I woke up early and cycled to Hackney Wick in the sunshine through Victoria Park. I met up with Angela, a very good friend of mine and also the founder of Botany, a special shop on Chatsworth Road offering a hand-picked selection of beautiful plants, homewares and natural beauty products. Emily who also works at Botany joined us, as well as a bunch of other flower lovers for a walk to look at the various wonderful wild flowers Hackney Wick and the surrounding area has to offer.
Strolling along the canal to the shop we encountered everything from wild oregano, salvia, poppies and blackberries. Once at the shop, Emily had gathered the most gorgeous flowers from the flower market for our very own attempt at bouquet making, inspired by our wild flower walk.
*Botany offers a variety of plant and flower-related workshops- you can book them here.
