Every Wed. afternoon here in town we have a farmer’s market.
And right now is my favorite part of the season. The produce is flowing onto the town common in all it’s colorful splendor. It’s just….. just…. it’s well… just YUM. I want to bring it ALL home with me.
So here are a few pictures I took while I was waiting for the selling/buying bell to ring…..
Yesterday was our town’s weekly Farmer’s market…I LOVE the farmer’s market.
I Rode my bike into town and got some stuff… organic….local….yummy….stuff.
All strapped in and ready for home.
I bought: Macoun apples…Red Dragon carrots…Swiss Chard…cabbage… Fresh farm made Gruyere cheese…and finally, because I couldn’t resist, a couple of White Chocolate, pineapple scones from the B&B across the street from me. The same B&B where you’ll hopefully be staying when I get my act together and offer classes in my studio… The Dragonfly Inn B&B. I dont know how anyone could have resisted them. ( I’m eating one now with my coffee as I write this…heaven)
Every year, on the 3rd of July, our town has a bonfire on the town common.
An independence day tradition with a fun band… this time it was a a Rod Stewart tribute band with Rick Larrimore as Rod Stewart….They were a lot of fun! You can see for yourself here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOtyIS_Gk2g.
I was working at the Lion’s Club stand selling hotdogs and popcorn etc. , so I wasn’t able to take the pics, but hubby did a wonderful job capturing the event for me. ( I did get one picture of the beautiful rainbow on my way to the concert, with the rainbow ending incredibly at the bandstand) :
On the left edge of the picture, you can see part of the bonfire before it was lit.
Per usual, our town put on another memorable event. Did I mention that I love my town????
The fire is safely started and attended by the F ire department…
It was a grand evening in my sweet town….
I hope you all had a lovely holiday… peace from West Brookfield….
“The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain singing to it… you and you alone make me feel that I am alive. Other men it is said have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.” – George Moore
My sister Sally was married this weekend. A beautiful day in our beautiful town. Her groom was handsome, and the guests were smiling. It couldn’t have been any better.
