We have a wonderful community florist near me. The young lady who runs it (Mandy), is a very talented florist indeed. Above her florists skill, she provides a great help to everyone, it is an old fashioned shop, with old "nothing is too much trouble," values. To be honest you do not find many like that in this day and age! This wonderful place has got me out of trouble many times when I have forgotten something for my mothers, fathers, birthday and anniversary etc. The flowers and plants are gathered fresh each morning from the market, and everything to us is reasonably priced.
Plus they have eflora, this can send flowers anywhere, which is helpful to me.
So I asked to day if they would like some pictures of this great little shop on the internet as they are not on the net, and they would love the work they do to be known. So I am putting them on here!
Even the Vicar was buying some plants for his garden and some flowers for the church, and her lovely little boy was looking at me through the window.
Abloom Florist 302a Stanstead Road Forest Hill, London SE23 1DE Telephone 0208-291-6757.
Regards.
Neil.

An old chimney pot in the shop! Lots of these are reused for plants or standing things on.

Inside fresh flowers! These sell out very quickly and are changed freshly every morning!

I bought these for Sarah two weeks ago and they are still beautiful, that is because Abloom had them in tight bud. How lovely to see these!

What a lovely flower shop! My first career was as a florist (did that for 16 years). Love all the blooms!

When Peter and I got married, A bloom did all our flowers, everyone said, "How lovely the tables looked", plus our our own flowers, mine and my Matron of Honor.
