Saturday I went in search of colours.
Britt-Arnhild at Britt-Arnhild's House in the Woods  was searching for colours in spring time
and it inspired me to go searching with my camera.
The Beaverton Farmer's Market seemed like a good place to search.
There are many farmer's markets around, but I had never visited this one.
I had the opportunity to meet another blogger, Cathy at Wives and Knives.
Cathy sells lovely nuts at the market.
How fun it is to connect with fellow bloggers face to face and also enjoy
the colours of the day.
The peonies particularly enchanted me,
but then aren't the bundles of asparagus just beautiful?
Do you have a farmer's market in your neighborhood?
I love having the opportunity to support our local growers.
What a treasure to find beautiful flowers and produce grown nearby and so fresh.
Enjoy exploring colours of spring time today.

Marilyn, how I wish I could have joined you at the market!! Have been yearning for Cathy's nuts since I first found her blog. Love the colors. I guess that is one reason spring has always been my favorite season.

We have a couple of Farmer's Markets near us, and I love to shop there. Flowers to brighten the day, and fruit and vegetables that taste of sunshine. I think it is the best way to shop..!

Glorious! What a spectacular group of delights! I love the peonies, too - just these tight balls of petals ready to burst into bloom!

Thank you for sharing these delights!

Your photos are wonderful, Marilyn. It was so nice to meet you too. Thank you so much for stopping by my booth to visit. I think the Beaverton market is great and hope you will come back again to visit.

Brava, Marilyn! This is a positively lovely mosaic.

I'm thrilled that farmer's markets are springing up all over country. It's a fantastic, ecologically-sound way to eat locally.
