The Farmer's Market was strangely not very crowded making for a pleasurable hour of browsing and buying. I was very good about NOT buying more flowers....the prices haven't come down....so I will wait until next week and grab the bargains when 2 of my favorite Nurseries-Holasek and TonkaDale will do their down dirty (pun intended) 75% off and buy one for a penny sales.
Here is the sum total of our purchases.....white potatoes for tonight's dinner....fresh peas for snacking on....lemons and limes....2 lavender plants $1 each....and a $3 Zinnia that was just too nice not to buy.
Here are the 2 lavender plants in their new home. Nice that I had an empty purple pot. I added some creeping time transplanted from the yard....a little trellis and plant markers made from clay saucers....I even impressed myself with how it turned out.
Lastly....... The flower arrangement for the deck table tonight.
The candles are citronella "Popsicles" that were a gift from a friend...thanks Kim. The detail shows how I used an antique flower frog to support them. There is floral foam under the frog to support the flowers.
I can't wait to see it with the candles lit.
Now...to quote many of you moms out there "Get off the computer and go ride your bike...it is too nice to waste the day inside."
