We had a late start after having Jim's car towed to get a remanufactured engine installed (very sad face). We didn't need a lot. The summer is clearly winding down for the farmers, very few tomatoes, little corn, squash much less abundant.
I took advantage of the annual flowers greatly reduced in price and got this great maroon plant that looks like coleus but isn't. I put it in a cachepot on my dining room table. The cut flowers were all gone by the time we got there. I also thought this little white plant was sweet and the little violet is a house plant. All a steal at 4.00.
Four little tomatoes, 3 peaches, some Yukon Gold potatoes (tomorrow's green bean potato salad), 3 pears and some bison. Oh, and that fabulous bunch of basil! I'd have bought it for the aromatic bouquet alone.
Oh, and you know fall is coming when the pumpkins and gourds show up. How about this one that looks like a buzzard!!
We went to Lynn's Paradise Cafe for breakfast. I was thinking that-hey, some people went out of town, it won't be so crowded-wrong! I forgot about the people that came HERE for the weekend.
But, the nice added attraction was the ugly lamp contest entries from the fair were there.
This was a favorite of mine. Can you make an ugly lamp look better with a hipstamatic?
