One of the pleasures of summer is a trip to the farmers' market on Saturday mornings. For some reason, we were very late in paying a visit this year, but better late than never. Although the main reason for going is to buy fresh produce, I do occasionally buy a pretty bunch of flowers.
Who could resist this recycled sweater turned into a sweet owl pillow? He looked in need of a good home and now he has one!

Summer has finally arrived, but not before time. The first hot days started at the beginning of August! My hanging baskets have been a bit of a disappointment because they were intended to be overflowing with blooms, but the cold spring stunted their growth. The colours are pretty, but I had thought that the baskets would be completely covered by now.
This photo was taken some weeks ago, but it gives a perspective of where the baskets are located on our front verandah. Maybe the arrival of the heat and humidity will see some late development.
