Home Again, but wish this was here...

We left DC yesterday afternoon and spent a really long time in the Baltimore airport. There was concern about not making it back to Evansville. A few of us actually would not have minded that kind of delay, because we were prepared to sleep at the airport in order to get a free flight voucher. We finally made it to Atlanta with less than 5 minutes to run through the terminal (and Teresa does NOT run), as we exited the plane, we found that there was a delay on the second flight...our class was 75% of the passenger list for the tiny plane we were to take back home...
A few of us spent the remaining morning hours walking around DuPont Circle, checking out the things we missed while visiting the "big sights"....
The Sunday Farmer's Market was in full swing, but due to the intermittent rain, the area wasn't crowded.
Mushrooms, galore...so many varieties!




A huge pot of rosemary...$65.00
Beautiful radishes and beets
Poppies in buckets





Many varieties of greens
Pretty little tulips
...and a colorful flat of petunias.

I was so tempted to try to bring some of this home, but I restrained myself. It won't be too long until the markets open around here...I'll just have to wait.

There are few things I love more than a Farmers Market, even if I don't buy anything. We don't have good ones here, just 4 or 5 vendors, not really worth making the effort. But I do go weekly to a farm that has been farmed by the same family for over 200 years. I feel really good about spending money there.

PS. Don't you hate it that you had to fly to Atlanta to get to Indiana? PPS. I don't run either...something about the boobs flapping in the face that is just bad for my self esteem!

One of my favorite things to do is go to the Farmer's Market. Our state farmer's market is only about a thirty minute drive for us, so we are able to go frequently. Thanks for sharing all of your wonderful pictures.

I'm glad you had such a great trip.

Farmer's Markets are great! Hope that you found something yummy to eat, too.

I would love that giant pot of rosemary for the patio.
