Enjoying fall's bounty

On Saturday morning it's hard to hurry period. I
just want to read the Globe, drink my coffee and
unwind from the hectic week with the cats. But
since we found the Brick Works Farmers' Market
last weekend, I've been dreaming about going back.

This week we bought tomatoes, basil, onions, grape
jelly, a hand picked, hand designed bouquet of
beautiful flowers, and a huge burrito filled with
a delicious mixture, which we split for lunch.

One of the gardens at the
Brick Works.
The children's willow tunnel is at
the right hand side of the picture
and is set between two rows of
10 ft. high sunflowers

I took this little picture of the garden with its
willow entrance for Flora, my friend in Nova
Scotia, who used to paint here, and wouldn't
believe the transformation. This is an old Brick
Works, that used to make the great red brick
that is everywhere in older Toronto homes.

I've been painting today, but my work isn't
ready for display yet. It's still at a rudimentary
stage. I'm sure you'll understand. It
must be ready by tomorrow night, so I'll show
you then.

Have a "what could be better?" day tomorrow.

o I like that willow tunnel! It looks like a great space and I'm so glad that the Brick Works has been invested in. It is another Toronto treasure. Thanks for the photo!

You're so welcome. It's really great there. It reminds me of all the things you like about Bear River.
