Looks Like Fall!

The Farmer's Market
Signs of Fall

This summer, we (my camera, friends, and I) spent almost every Saturday morning at our local Farmer's Market.
Last week the temperatures dropped and Fall showed it's true colors. It was amazing to see
the changes reflected at the market. 

Acorn squash (Winter squash) appeared for the first time in the vendor's booths.
Baskets replaced some of the crates.


The flowers changed to those that can survive our chilly weather.
Soooooooo BEAUTIFUL!!!


The bands dressed warmer!


Beautiful orange pumpkins appeared in a number of the booths.
I also saw some colorful Indian Corn.


Warm clothing and warm egg rolls. They also make great crab rangoons!

Mum plants for sale!
Time to get those frost-tolerant flowers in the ground.


Isn't she lovely?

This morning it has been raining and we missed the Market, but there will be other
Saturdays thru October!

Missed you all this Summer!!

Make this a great day!

Hi Joni, so nice to see you back again. Hopefully we'll see a bit more of you now it's getting cooler ;o). How are you keeping? And how is Otter getting on? So much catching up to do! Have a wonderful weekend.

Joni, I've just seen your message (thank you :o) ). If you go on to your Blogger dashboard page, click on the Design tab and underneath the tabs you'll see some more headings. Click on the Template Designer and it'll bring up some new templates that you can choose for your background. You can click on a template and it'll show you what your blog would look like. If you don't like it just go up and click on a different one until you find something you like. Hope that helps (otherwise you could join me in a class that Jessica Sprague is running - starting next week I think - on designing your own blog with papers and headers etc. Looks like fun!) xx
