''I left my house to go and buy a copy of The Times, which I did each morning.
There was a flower shop on the corner of the road where I lived.
As I reached the corner I could see the brightly coloured flowers.
I turned into Abbey Lane.

A few minutes later I arrived at the shop to buy my Times.''

This is a paragraph from the book ''The Enchanted Doll''.

What is the meaning of the sentence in red color?

is it an idiom?
