This is mine,

'Once a week the flower-sellers laid out their banks of mimosa,tulips, and lilies, potted jasmine, Japanese tree-peonies with tissue-paper blooms, pink and yellow roses, filling the vaulted space beneath the massive marble art-nouveau arcades along one side of the Piazza della Repubblica, and flooding it with colour and scent. Once the warm weather had arrived in earnest, as Frances felt, today, that it had, the atmosphere of the flower market became intoxicating;perfumed and opiate,and even when a summer downpour would fill the piazza with pelting rain, beneath the arches it felt like an Indian bazaar in the monsoon.'

taken from page 198, 'A Party in San Niccolo' by Christobel Kent.

This is a fantastic book, a review will be following soon, watch this space!
