Flora from the Farmers' Market................



Our Saturday jaunt into downtown included a visit to the 
State Farmers' Market - a huge complex of stalls, under cover 
but open-sided to allow the breeze to waft through drying 
the perspiring brow on a hot southern Summer's day.


I found the perfect flower stall. All flowers grown 
on a farm a couple of hours drive west of 
town.......being gently and lovingly arranged by a 
young, smiling coupleoriginally from Laos, into 
the type of bouquets I love, informal, loose, mixed, 
perfect colors.
Reminded me of the amazing flower stands on the 
streets in Thailand.
Do you enjoy cut flowers in your home?

  4. I can't wait for the dahlias to be ready here, as they make the most beautiful bouquets. Yes, I love a blowsy bunch of flowers on the kitchen table, or anywhere!

  6. I love cut flowers - right now I have a beauty of a bouquet of Dahlias, cut just yesterday from a new friend's garden. At our first meeting she gave us, all from her gardens, freshly dug potatoes, green beans, cucumbers, parsley and peas - plus the flowers.

    Somehow I had lost all the blogs I was following on bloglines and I recognized your photo on another blog and was so happy to find it again. Now to catch up on the last 6 months that I have missed.

  9. I LOVE cut flowers in my home - in as many rooms as possible. When my own flowers are blooming, I fill vases with them. When we get home at the end of the week, I expect the dahlias will be in full force, along with cosmos and of course, beautiful hydrangeas.
    Your bouquet is lush and lovely.

  10. Oh yes, I love cut flowers in my home all year long. They come from my garden in the summer/blooming months and the market during the winter month. Love, love your bouquet.

  11. These are so lovely! I love fresh cut flowers whether they're from the garden or bought from a market. And have you noticed that when you have a beautiful bouquet in your house it makes you tidy everything else up too? I am a new follower and look forward to more wonderful posts from you!

  12. What a beautiful bouquet. The colors are so pretty together.
    I recently read about the family from Laos in the Charlotte Observer. So interesting.
    I do enjoy fresh flowers in my home and as I was reading your post I noticed that the bouquet on my kitchen table is past it's prime. Must see if I can remedy that today.
