To Market

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!

Late Developers

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.
