I went to the Farmer's Market this morning and walked around with different eyes. After the markets in France, I now see that here in Santa Fe, we have equally as wonderful veggies and fruits, as well as live music and yummy snacks....(I had a veggie tamale and a chicken tamale)
In the fall, everything is truly spectacular. I will go again on Saturday, which is a much bigger market, and take oodles of photos, since these really do not give you the full effect..
Aren't these plums (and peaches) luscious?
And, how 'bout this sunflower?! I guess it is hard to tell the scale from this photo. Take my word for it - it is HUGE!
....and I love mushrooms! These were particularly incredible looking...
...and last, but not least..... this little donkey is made from sage and then the red peppers and purple & yellow statice and juniper tips & berries were added. So cute! Around here, you always see "smudge" sticks, which are lit with fire and the smoke is then used to clear any bad spirits and negative energy from a space. This one has so much imagination going for it! It would be hard to burn the little guy.
