Winter Park,Florida,that is.Which is a fifteen minute drive from Michael,the Elder’s,new home…where Miss Emma lives…
After delivering the tomatoes to Miss Emma,who happened to be a touch cranky,we(Michael and I) decided to take Kyle and Gina to the Saturday Farmer’s Market,in Winter Park.
The Market is held at the old train depot, located at 200 West New England Avenue, which has been restored into an historical landmark . It takes place every Saturday morning from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.Venders have all kinds of goodies for sale.Amish butter..bought some..,artisan bread..bought two loaves..,spices,produce,teas,even grass fed beef,and PLANTS!
This lady’s Broms were $8/ea or $20 for three.Not a bad deal,as they were all healthy and different than the usual ones we see.
I bought a cutting of each of these.A little pricey,but they were ones I do not already have,and haven’t seen available,before.
…Am I good at justifying the money,or does every gardener do that?
Because the Market is held next to the Amtrak Station,every so often a train goes by.And all the kids,big and little,have to run over to wave at the conductor.
As it was the typical hot morning,in June,it was time to find a bench in the shady park,and cool off…..
and enjoy the plein aire painters…
I didn’t want to interrupt the people practicing Tai Chi,so there are no photos of that.But there were many practicing the ancient art.And it was mesmerizing to watch.
So,I settled for taking photos of the containers that grace downtown Winter Park.Here are a few….
Love the fire hydrant with it’s silver paint!
Besides the two Plumeria cuttings,I came home with these treasures…
The orchid was only $5 !
I think I heart Winter Park!
Excuse me,Gramma,but I would like to say something.
Okay,Emma,the blog is yours….
First off,I wasn’t cranky.I had gas.Babies get gas.Why do big people forget about that?
Second,why do Kyle and Gina get to have all the fun?I want to see a train,too.I want some Kettle Corn!---ummmm,Emma,you’re not allowed Kettle Corn,just yet…Whatever,Gramma…I want to see flowers!
You big people are gonna pay for leaving me home.
So,to get back at the big people,I stood up,all by myself,yesterday!
I just don’t have that “getting-back-down-gracefully” thing down yet.But I’m working on it.
But I am cute…
Yes,Emma,you most certainly are!
Emma and TheGreatWall wish you a great gardening week!
