I was out of town when we got rain a couple of weeks ago, but now I'm here at home for the second rain of the season. I live on the far north coast of California, in the redwood forest, in the lungs of the world, so we get a lot of rain, usually from Halloween through March or April. The first year I lived here, I swear it rained non-stop through the month of February. Now that it's rainy and windy, I thought I'd take out some summery photos of this year's farmer's market.

There's something cheerful about sunflowers. They are so hardy and robust. And here's my Michael smelling the thyme.

I love this display of cherry tomatoes. They are indeed like paintboxes, a feast for the eyes, but they also taste as good as they look.

It's rainy and dark, but we did have a lovely summer.

Sunflowers are great! At first I was thinking that you were going to say you grew those sunflowers and that would've ticked me off! Great that you also have a farmer's market. I would enjoy that too.

Well I did PLANT sunflowers this year...but they didn't quite grow. They actually dried up and died. It's so nice of the Farmer's Market to fill that little void.
