farmers market






ciao, gentle readers...
we have a tiny farmers market here
and we often travel to Ann Arbor for







a much bigger venue...





but I like to support our local farmers 





and it is so much fun to bring





such fresh produce home...





not to mention the purchase of 
perennials..
and native plants...






we have not been out much lately..
we are busy painting our house and getting ready to put it on the market..





so I have not had any studio time... 








but hoping to get back to my work sooon...
doing a lot of painting... but not the good kind...




be back soon

C4N!

Well as long as you've had flower time until you can get back to the studio....
I feel quite sad that you are selling your house. It seemed so right for you (through I only get this feeling through reading your blog)

Great photos! Love to see cabbages in all their leafy glory that the supermarkets always take off.
Probably my least favorite chore is painting walls. Ugh! There's a rhythm to it though and satisfaction when it's all done. (Are you coming back to Colorado?)

Dear Caterina, your little market looks so filled with all kind of wonderful greens and flowers!! Must be a joy getting your dailybuyes from there!
Where are you moving to? making ones home look presentable can almost make the wish of selling ,to a wish of staying :-)
Happy hours painting , even not the most fun part !!
Hugs,Dorthe

I wish you the best in this preparation and selling...I've done it many times and it is time consuming. I hope you are not leaving this charming town? Wherever you go, there will be your love of the garden and art making! Good luck!

I always love a Farmer's Market. They are fun and you get plenty of exercise if it's large enough.

I've painted two houses and mine twice. I don't wish that on ANYONE. I wish you luck with moving. At least the economy has opened a bit. But you have such a beautiful home and garden, I'm sure it will be hard to leave.

Hope to see you back in the studio soon, though.

Farmer's Markets are wonderful, even when small. Our closest one is one hour away and is not very big, but a wide variety of goodies to pick from.
Selling and moving? I know what that's like. Whew!

Nothing tiny about those cabbages!!!
and you had me with your photo of the "ALEXANDER Farm Market and Green Houses" van ♥

The farmer's market looks wonderful...
I was just saying to Mr M that we haven't been to any...
yet this season...
we've either been away or it's been too hot!

Hope you can do your favorite kind of painting soon and OY on the work involved with house painting!

I love going to the farmer's market and all your photos are wonderful.

So much to do when one sells a house, we sold ours last year and did lots of painting.
Lots of luck to you :)

Take care.
