Farmer's Market

Our one adventure was a visit to the Farmer's Market. It was a perfect summer day and it seemed the world was in a good mood. Maybe it was just that my mood was so good that things that might have bothered me today -- a less perfect summer day at work -- just didn't upset me at all. Or maybe we just had a perfect summer day.

There were flowers...

Dancing children...

The bounty of the earth...

Some of the most beautiful yarn I've ever seen. 

It was eighty degrees, there was sunlight and I was in the company of one of my dearest friends. A day to enjoy, to treasure and to share!

Wishing you days to enjoy, to treasure and to share!

P.S. I became so taken with the yarn and the lovely women spinning it (!) that it will be the subject of another post later this week.

You know I love our Farmer's Market, when I think of New York I didn't think they would even have one. (Sorry)

That looked like a nice Farmer's Market - lots of fresh food.

It does sound like a perfect summer day! 80 degrees is much nicer than the 90's we are having this week. The yarn is lovely...are you going to be making something now? It would be tempting for sure.

You forgot the Chocolate Fudge coffee and the Butter Toffee coffee. I'm in coffee withdrawal since you left. So glad you had a nice day.

Farmer's Markets always make me happy. When we travel, I always look for a local market. In addition to the fare offered at the market, you can learn so much about the flavor of the community by sitting with a cup of coffee and watching. I'd love to know about the Chocolate Fudge and Butter Toffee also!!

I do love the market days. We have one on a Saturday in Chippenham and a Tiesday in Corsham so we are lucky...but NEITHER of them have such a gorgeous wool stall. I would be bankrupt if there was !!! Enjoy your weather we are cooling down now although yesterday an dthe rest of the week we are promised high 60's and even maybe if we are lucky into the 70's !! at night though getting real chilly...Autumn in the air for sure.
Love Sybil xx
