Happy Marching to market

I don't think I included this painting in my recent
posts, but I always feel proud when I come
across it.  Especially in the collector's kitchen
where it has a happy home. Today was market
day -- and I'm eternally grateful to the market
people who not only take my email orders when
I go to sleep, and forget to send them in until the middle
of the night, but also wait for us to arrive.  And we
are always late in the market scheme of things,
with people, including the farmers we buy our eggs,
quiche and lettuce from, packing up like crazy.

These were tomatoes grown in what used to be
a children's garden at the time of this painting,
and has now become a community garden -- an
excellent plan.  So baby farmers grew these
baby tomatoes, and I do recall that the tomatoes were
particularly delicious.  A nice thought at a time
of year before the growing season starts. I saw two
robins in a tree today -- a sure sign that spring is

Have a dreaming of summer day.
