If you've been reading my blog for awhile you may have picked up the fact that I love living near the Dane County Farmer's Market. On any given seasonal Saturday morning I can drive a half hour and find just about any natural product my heart desires.
Back in August, just days after we returned from our trip to California, I took my friends from Chicago to experience the market for the first time. I took some eye-candy while I was there, that I thought you might enjoy peeking at.
The landscaping and capitol building.
So in love with the color here:
And I might paint a room in my house heirloom tomato red; I already have a side table painted this color (the paint is from Ace Hardware, and it was called something like heirloom tomato red).
These Delphiniums are so beautiful to me. I can't help but get lost imagining the garden they came out of.
Beautiful Zinnias; this year mine were plaqued with powdery mildew and just weren't impressive. I was so excited about Green Envy, and it was the moldiest of the group. My son did request to take a green flower to school on the show and tell mom day. These farmer's market flowers are beauties.
Talk about artwork:
We did bring some of these home with us, mine had not flourished at home without my care for 3 weeks. In fact, all but 2 of my bean plants died when I was gone. I sort of saw it comin'. Nevetheless, the beautiful beans we bought here were delicious.
This big guy was free; my friend and I both took home chunks. I made bread, it wouldn't be good for much else, right?
Hope you enjoyed my brief trip to the market!
