Food for Thought


sunlit strawberries,
nourishing my heart and soul;
picnic on green field
~ ~ ~
in the shade of trees,
leafing through another book;
knowledge brings wisdom
~ ~ ~

Every Saturday morning in the summer, we go to a farmer's market in our hometown. They have the most delicious fruits, herbs, and vegetables--so healthy for you. They also have beautiful freshly picked flowers. I took a few photographs at the market today and made a collage of a variety of produce and blooms. How wonderful to go on a picnic in the company of a good friend, a great book to read to each other, and nutritious food! Sharing with The View From Right Here at http://www.theviewfromrighthere.com/blog/; and Haiku Heights at http://haiku-heights.blogspot.com/ (prompt: wisdom). Enjoy!

  10. I have been told that learning comes from books and wisdom comes from living. I love your bright fruit and vegetable pictures. You have reminded me of our Farmer's Market in Houston. It is open every day.

  12. I love fresh vegetables!! But the summer is very short in Finland so here we are not getting to enjoy domestic fresh veggies and the flower-spectrum very long, but luckily the harvest will begin also in here allthough very soon. Love your colourful pic and nice haiku also :) ! Very soon will also appear my second photo-collection related to spring and summer.

  14. Lovely collage, even though we grow our own produce there are still things that we do not grow for one reason or another so we also enjoy visits to our local markets.
