The roses are in fine fettle for midsummer's day. They're absolutely loaded with blooms. Lookit!!
I was happy to see the farmers market is back on in town after being missing in action for a couple of weeks. I think I've mentioned before how disappointing it had become with more and more market tat jewellery stalls and hardly any produce. After a bit of a revamp there did seem to be more there today however I still think 'farmers market' is still a bit of a misnomer. There was a street food cafe (whatever that might be. A sausage roll eaten out of a paper bag could be street food!!), ubiquitous market tat jewellery, a woman selling godawful fake flowers, (I know you can get some amazingly lifelike ones but these were, erm, well just no thanks!!), a cupcake stall. Yay for glorified fairy cakes at £1.75 each. I don't get it! On a better note there were some fresh and wonderful veggies on one stall, huge and fragrant strawberries on another as well as some artisan bread and a butchers stall. That was more like it. A Fair trade clothing stall lit up one corner with its bright Indian cotton clothes and bags.
And an owl stall.
