If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. - Ursula K. LeGuin

Farmer's Market

Today b and I got up early (for us) and headed to the Farmer's Market.  This time we had a plan.  We wanted to buy the makings of a salad, some fresh bread, a sharp cheddar cheese, and peaches.  Dinner this evening was salmon with bread and cheese and a simple salad.  It was delicious.  I also made cinnamon ice cream for tomorrow night's peach cobbler.  I can't wait.

SouthLite's Farmer's Market.  
This shot totally does not do justice to how very crowded it gets every Saturday.  I always run into at least one colleague when I'm there.  Today was no exception.

There are always lots of gorgeous flowers.  I love to look at them but I'm not the flower buying type.

Homemade Soap
There are also a lot of homemade crafts (and baked goods) at the Farmer's Market.  This soap always smells amazing but I never buy any.

Fresh Bread
A local bakery sells their amazing breads every week.  The Garlic Rosemary is one of our favorites.  This time we also bought a Cinnamon Raisin bread for breakfast. 

Pickled Beets
Who couldn't resist pickled beets?  Ok, we really can.  b and I have an ongoing joke about beets.  We don't like them yet they follow us where ever we go.

Yellow Squash
Normally I load up on the fresh veggies.  The squash was very appealing but I resisted.  I like that I caught a hand swooping down in this shot. 

One of the things I love about living in the South is the peaches.

I meant to comment on this one last week, but my brain spaced out (even more so than usual) when I came back from my trip. Anyway, I just wanted to say again how awesome your pictures are. The peaches are amazing!
