Day 38 - Owls n Roses

Bright Blessings to you all on this blessed Solstice Day.  Happy birthday to my own Solstice Goddess, my lovely Momma!

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. 

Sadly they weren't for sale!!  Aren't they gorgeous though?  


  1. Just glad they weren't being farmed for the market!

  2. The owls are beautiful - I have given up with markets, they are always disappointing these days, prefer to stick to the farm shops etc xxx
