Another Day at the Market

You know me, I love going to the farmers market on Saturday mornings. June is such a great time at the market because strawberries – my favorite food – are in season!

We saw lots and lots of sugar snap peas,

I almost forgot to show you the stack of pies for sale at the Amish booth. They make the best bakery!

Check out the gorgeous peony bouquets for sale.

  1. Nature produces the best drama! I think huge, deep pink blooms just scream abundance and richness more than anything money can buy. And the fragrance! Can the Paris H.’s of this world possibly appreciate this? If they’re lucky!

  2. The flowers are beautiful! I wish the weather here was conducive to growing peony and dahlia I have to buy them at Costco! What a fun Saturday adventure.
