flower power

just another day downtown

An old dress that always makes me feel happy. A new raincoat makes rain fashionable. A downtown park to hang with my best buddy, swap cookies, and admire flowers. Pretty sure this is the first day I bared these white stems of mine. Swaddled in tights, legging and pants all winter, they are quite blinding with their ivory hue. Travis told me he was adjusting the exposure to reduce their glare.

The Wednesday downtown farmer's market is only a couple weeks away! They are even adding a new one on Mondays... I'll be there before they ring the bell, picking up my weekly office munchies. When I first moved here and started working in the office, farmer market Wednesdays were, and still are, my favorite day of the week! I was amazed to discover no one else really thought much about it. World Class Farmer Market people!

There's nothing better than crates of raspberries, blueberries and blackberries awaiting you for a respite from the computer. Oh wait, picking them yourself! That's better.
