Me and Sara at the Farmer's Market

My youngest DD, Sara (Little Miss Sunflower) and I went to the Farmer's market that is just a 1/2 mile or so from my house. How convenient is that? And picked up a few things. Sara is holding the flowers that we were getting for our friend Sylvia, who is in the hospital with pancreas problems. We wanted to get something bright and cheerful because that is what reminds us of Sylvia. We got her some Teddybear Sunflowers (they are so CUTE!) Gerber Daisies and some white flowers that I have no idea what they are. We came home and I put them into a vase and Sara made her a card with a bee on it because Sylvia and her DH Dan are going to start raising honey bees.
Here is Sylvia's flowers and Sara's card for her. I wish I would have taken a close up of this sweet card. She put a lot of work into it. I was in too much of a hurry to get everything done so that we could get down to Walnut Creek to deliver them.
Anyhoo, here are some of the tasty treats that we brought home. The corn is white corn from Brentwood (a town next to us). The bread....OMG that bread was so YUMMY and gone by the next day. It was roasted onion and asiago cheese on sourdough. I am getting hungry just thinking about it. It is down on the list for next week of what to get. We also got green and red Pluots (Plum/Apricot hybrid) and the most Yummy Heirloom Tomatoes! The yellow one had a swirl of red throughout the inside. Oh, we also got cookies but they were gone before the camara was out of the case!

There were lots of other things that I would have liked to look at (homemade soaps and many different flavors of honey to try) that I will have to save it for next time.

WELL.......Mr. Blue Cottage and I will be celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary tommorrow. Sometimes it seems like only 10 years and other times....well..let's just leave it at that. :) hee hee!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

That bread does look delicious. I dont think it would have even lasted an hour at my house.
