The Farmer's Market in July
I just love this time of year. I wish it was summer year 'round. Do you think we should move to Florida? The Union Square Farmer's Market is now in full swing and we are just back from our Saturday morning trip to stock up on vegetables and flowers.
From the west side, we cut through Union Square to get to the Durr's flower truck on the east side. Pale, poetic variegated hydrangeas are now blooming in Union Square; you know I'm a fan of hydrangeas.
The Durrs now have rows and rows of flowers from which to choose.
Another stand offered these Denver daisies. I like the name of that.
This stand sells lovely lilies. We get a small bouquet pictured in the front and put the single flowers around the house – they smell heavenly when you pass by.
Sunflowers – $2 each, 3 for $5.
Piles of carrots and big radishes in vivid hues.
I'm waiting for the tomatoes to come!
Have a great summer weekend.
