Gotta love it. Sorry I missed you. I love the zinnias I got. The lady made me a bouquet of just zinnias. I'm heading back Thursday for more. Oh so pretty.

It all looks so pretty!! We have been eating lots of sweetcorn this summer and enjoying it immensely. We seem to have it once or twice a week. Good stuff!!

Love all this freshness! The Muskegan Michigan Farmers Market knows how to do it right!! You should link this to Farm Fresh Friday, it's perfection!
