Farmers Market Finds

Hello friends!   I hope you had a blessed Easter.

Outdoor Wednesday: Click on the picture below to learn more...

I am linking to the Outdoor Wednesday party at A Southern Day Dreamer.

I had a “fruitful” trip to the Farmers Market on Good Friday.      I purchased fresh Louisiana strawberries, Lady Cream Peas and fresh asparagus, all of which were served at my Easter lunch.      In addition to the fruit and veggies, I bought a few plants.

This is a black eyed Susan vine.     It is already blooming!

Love the colors on this firecracker vine.   This is my first time to buy one of these.    Hope I can keep it alive.

I also bought some zinnias, coleus, sweet potato vine, and superbells (calibrachoa) and planted them in pots by my mailbox.

In comparison, here is my neighbor’s mailbox.    Her clematis is blooming profusely.    She is such a show off!

While snapping photos of the mailbox, this cat got spooked by my dog (who never saw her) and ran up my sweet gum tree.    I don’t know where this cat lives, but we have already rescued her once before out of one of our trees.

A couple of my hibiscus are blooming.     I kept them alive all winter long in the greenhouse.  

Thank you for stopping by to visit.    Please come back soon.

Is that your kitty in the tree? How precious. I hope she/he figures out how to get down. Our cat had five toes so he came down like a squirrel. tee hee. Take care. See you next week.

We enjoy the farmer's market in our area. We buy what we don't grow. Can't beat fresh! Nice post!

I love all your finds at the farmer's market. I lost my blackeyed susan vine this winter when we built a new fence...the builder ripped it out before asking me to dig it up...I forgot how much I missed it until I saw yours!

Love all of your beautiful finds. You mentioned sweet potato vine. Thanks for the reminder. I love to use them in pots as fillers.
