Weekend Photos

The produce at the farmers market this weekend in Lion's Head was worth photographing.
The vendors always seem suprised when I swoop in with my Zoom lens and
photograph their luscious veggies.

They are getting used to me now and "pose" the produce.
It's worthy of a picture.
I was entertaining a crowd of 15 for dinner and I wanted to serve all local, fresh farm vegetables.

Finally Local Garlic in town......I have been boycotting the grocery store garlic from China
I celebrated by serving Ontario Pork Tenderloin marinated in balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and
cloves and cloves of garlic.

The Buskers for Cancer were there to keep the morning festive......
Organic coffee......hand knitted goods,
 homemade cheeses and soaps.


Sunflowers and Sunny people......
Fireworks over the lake.
A late Breakfast .......

Safe trip friends leaving on their hot new Pearl White Motorcycle

  4. Hi Chania....!

    Tina's right on the money there....Thos pics are AMAZING....I feel like I could reach out & touch your vegies....!!

    GOOD ON YOU for boycotting the Chinese garlic....Mr SVJ stopped buying ANYTHING manufactured in China 15 months ago....We're running out of socks & undies but apart from that we're not experiencing any hardship & we're making our stand....!!

    I would seriously have a panic attack if I had to cook for more than 4 people....!!

    Cheers for now lovey,
    Tamarah :o)
