Can you even belive how amazingly adorable these tiny apples are?! I got so excited when I saw them, and asked what sort they are. The farmer replied, "Oh, those are Summer apples. Go ahead and try one. They don't grow any bigger than that." I bit into one; it was crisp, tart, and juicy, with white flesh and itty-bitty pale seeds. I am still totally fascinated! I definitely want to paint them.
Was overjoyed to see the sunflowers, echinacea, and black eyed susans. I love buying from the American; we speak English and converse about family, farming, flowers...and he always gives me a good deal.
Does anyone else here love speckled eggs? There is something so charming about them. And it's an added bonus if there are bits of downy feathers stuck to them, like the one top right. Fresh from the chicken's warm nest! It would be a dream come true for me to have different types of chickens who lay a variety of colours. Can you imagine? A basket of brown, white, green, speckled, and blue eggs? I'd end up writing a poetry book just about eggs!
