Farmers Market Saturday


our farmers market was this morning and i really didn't need produce, but it was such a beautiful morning i just felt like getting out and smelling the air. and look what i found. pink tulips and white hydrangeas. the little bare branches are apricot branches leftover from when john pruned our bleinheim apricot trees last saturday. the room is where i blog.if you look closely on the left hand side, on the stack of books...you'll see a black and yellow book...it's a copy of blogger for dummies. i need all the help i can get.

  3. Beautiful shade on the tulips... we out here in the Wild West enjoy knowing that at some point, spring WILL arrive... Blogging for Dummies? I imagine I could benefit from that also. I'm going to see if the local library has it. The cherry blossoms on the side of your blog are so beautiful, I can imagine the bees buzzing around it.

  4. Those are beautiful flowers Kary...It is also a very nice day here and I'm excited to do some yard work later...My husband and I are on our way to Blogfest; a small gathering of friends that regularly blog on our region's newspaper blog site called Huckleberries Online. As for your blogging skills : I hardly think you need Blogger for Dummies :) You do a fine job :) Have a great day!

  9. The flowers at farmers markets are every bit as lovely as the produce! I rarely take a trip to one without coming home with flowers as well as produce.
    What a lovely arrangement of pink and white. Very feminine!

  12. I think you save a small pic, then go to layout and click add gadget, choose picture on the pop up for that, click browse to add the pic, fill out info and add your blogspot url and save.

    I know this only because I've added buttons on my blog. I haven't created one to my own blog. You don't have to do this, I don't know if I will yet. :)

  14. Gorgeous flowers! There is nowhere more spectacular I think, for tulips, than Butchart Gardens in the spring. The enormous array of all types and colors is almost obscene.

    I've been sitting here in my mother's hospital room for the past eight hours. I was told there was no wi-fi but, somehow, I hooked on, somewhere. I'm off, in a few minutes, for catfish, hushpuppies and raw oysters!!!

  20. Pink tulips ~ they sing a song of spring! They are my favorite flower...

    I think it is great that you are trying to learn more about blogging ~ although I could say that I have already learned so much from you. I like your sidebars, the simplicity of your posts, and the ever present lovely photograph that instantly makes you feel like we are there with you. I especially enjoy your posts about cooking ~ your kitchen is obviously the soul of your home.

    Now, if only we could teach the rest of the world not to have to their eyes glaze over when you say, "I have a blog..."

  23. Kary, What beautiful flower's, It's so satisfying having fresh flowers in the house. I find it hard to believe that you need Blogging for Dummies.

  24. I just saw that you have Forget-me-nots on the side bar of your blog, saying "What I planted today".
    They are my favourite flowers! Only two weeks ago, I finally met one of my closest friends again after more than a year, and could give him a present I had kept in my drawer for ages. To the parcel, I attached a small packet of Forget-me-not seeds. I do hope he will use them in his garden and maybe think of me when the flowers come out.

  25. Oh, you lucky gal!
    They are simply breathtaking! Cindy

  26. That's it I'm moving your way. A farmer's market in Feb., no way. You sure are one lucky lady. Perfect color for the tulips, to bring on spring.

    Happy Sunday

  31. Oh, Kary, I have been yearning for fresh flowers! I have to remedy that this week. (Especially since I see more snow in the forecast.) Enough said.

  33. Without my weekly dose of farmers market on Saturday morning, I am grouchy all week (well, sorta).

    Those tulips are gorgeous, would go well with the apricot blossoms!
    I have not yet managed to get to the Wachau valley, about an hour upstream on the Danube and famous for its small rose apricots.
