I’ll be the first to admit that my posts have been a little wordy lately. Heavy on the waxing, not so generous in the photos department.
Today I’ll try to do the opposite. Today, for me anyhow, was a feast for the eyes. I stumbled upon the Friday morning farmers’ market which spans a good number of blocks in the old downtown. It was amazing. Even just the idea of a true farmers’ market thrills me. A coming together of all the local wares, where the community gathers to fill their fridges and pantries for the week ahead. And the flowers! Oh the flowers – the Swiss are so, so good at flowers. I could have wandered, taking photos, all morning. One day I hope to come back as a shopper, not just a gawker.
I don’t know if you need to be true Swiss to have the flower gift. My sister-in-law and mother-in-law both have it. I wonder if it is something that will rub off on me during my time here. Or does it require patience, attention to detail and an artistic flare that I just don’t possess?
There are glimpses of Fall’s approach and along with my delight in being able to wear pants again, I am excited to see how everyone’s decor reflects the new season. It’s just such a pretty place.
Another sweet photo from the morning…Helena and her school buddies.
Tomorrow may provide another opportunity for great photos. We plan to hop on a train to go explore Germany. About a 40 minute ride away. Another adventure awaits…
