Italian Doorway and Flower Pots
C and I managed to get to the Durham Farmer's Market yesterday before the rains set in ... and brought home our first tomatoes!!! corn on the cob, okra, fresh beef, free-range eggs, goat cheese -- a feast indeed! And funniest of all -- we met our farming neighbors from OXFORD !!! So we're hoping to take the grands at some time to visit a few more farms in the area to see chickens, goats and the like.
Meantime, thunderstorms keep me indoors and strolling through saved images (this one from Wet Canvas) for painting practice. I have quite a few images from Italy, and they ALWAYS make me nostalgic to return to a place that so felt so much like home. This scene is one in particular ... how often we'd see these pots of pretty flowers outside ochre-painted homes. Just LOVE these views!
