I'm a farm girl at heart

Last Saturday when we showed up at the farmer's market, we made the happy discovery that it was tractor day.  Of course!  How could I have forgotten tractor day?

This was our first venture out to the farmer's market this year and it did not disappoint.  And while we arrived home loaded down with strawberries and asparagus and herbs for the garden and a chocolate croissant, all we took pictures of were the flowers. 

There are rows and rows of flowers.  They used to be $5 a bouquet, but now have crept up into the $10 range. 

Oh, but they're lovely. 

Farmer's Market flowers are a once-in-a-while treat for us.  Last Easter we bought tulips for the table and I was drooling over these tulips on Saturday and picturing myself coming back for them.  I get wrapped up in the colors- spun honey and rosy cheeks and that perfect shiny pink you find inside seashells.

There are also tons of flowering plants in the greenery shed and we investigated every last one of them.  And still managed to restrain ourselves to only purchasing lavender, sage, and mint.  I think we both still remember how much water it takes to keep plants alive in the summer here.  We might as well be living in the Sahara. 

Today I am finalizing the menu for our big Easter lunch.  I'm dreaming about buttermilk biscuits and chocolate berry pie.  Tomorrow I will share some of the final preparations for the big day!
