Winter Market

"We wander for distraction,
but we travel for fulfillment."
Hilaire Beloc

There's a place right down the street from my house -
It's a nursery, it's a shop, it's a market.
It's a wonderful place to wander.

Under the bright afternoon sun, 
I pulled in...found a place to park...
and began to walk around.

There's a lovely old auto,
from the early days of the nursery,
that sits outside one of it's greenhouses.

Half the reason I go to the market
is to people watch.
My favorite are the little groups of  'old lady' friends.

My favorite find today was
recycled glassware.
Plates, bowls...really pretty.

And there are lots of baskets...
{some filled with fruit}

{some filled with flowers}

{and plenty waiting to be filled}

Local goodies
and some good ol' fashioned team spirit!
Love this place!
