It's official - summer is here. We know that because the Farmer's Market has finally opened. It doesn't have a lot of fresh produce yet...but it's an attempt at bringing the town out and about again. I was SO ready. It was a lovely morning strolling through the small market and looking at color, and people, and talking with the farmers. One family was selling plants - tomatoes, beans, etc., but also cotton and avacado! When asked about the diverse nature of those two plants in particular, the witty couple said, well, if the summer is hot the cotton will do well, but if the summer is cool, then the avacado will be delicious. The power of positive thinking:). Neither plant is one you'd expect to find in mid-Michigan!
And while I was enjoying the warm sun and beautiful colors, I thought this a good time to reveal the color I have added to my wardrobe since the challenge of Color Week opened my eyes to the possibilities:). Voila - my first pair of red shoes....probably ever! Perfect for those summer hikes. My semester is complete and I am ready to enjoy my vacation. And sleep. Yes...sleep.
