Every Wednesday and Saturday The Green City Farmer's Market takes place just a few blocks from my house. I absolutely love going there and I even get up early to try to get the best selection. They have tons of fresh fruit, veggies, and herbs. Lots of potted flowers and freshly cut stems. On Saturdays it's like a massive feast there with Chef demonstrations, booths making smoothies, baked goods, omelettes, and breakfasts sandwiches. In other words I'm obsessed with this market. It starts in mid May and runs through October. Since the beginning of this season they have had the most beautiful peony stems there and I bring a few of them home with me each week.
Here are the beauties I got there most recently.
I love that when I bring them home they are these little colorful pops of color and then they bloom into these huge full flowers. I absolutely adore peonies!
What is your favorite flower to have in your home? What do you use to add some punches of color in the summer?
