Memorial Weekend

On Saturday morning my sister and I headed off to the Farmers' Market.
Even though it has a holiday weekend, it was bustling.

We stopped to listen to this group - good music!

By the end of May, there's a wide variety of produce available.

Signs of spring - snap peas and strawberries.

This stand offers all kinds of mixed greens.

Yep, it is finally warm enough to plant tomatoes.

Amazing to have raspberries and blackberries already. 

I was in search of a couple of bouquets.

It was hard to chose.

Cold pressed juices are The New Thing at the market.
They are expensive from $7.50 to $9.25 a bottle.

Most of the shoppers were oblivious, by I noticed that there was a very large flock of Cedar Waxwings in the trees at the market!

My sister bought a tomato plant, 2 pepper plants, red potatoes, 2 pints of strawberries and green onions. 

I found two lovely bouquets for Memorial weekend. 

Later in the afternoon, my sister, mother, aunt and I headed off with these flowers and lots more to visit three local cemeteries.  We visited memorials for two sets of my great-grandparents, both sets of my grandparents, and a couple of my uncles. After all that is what this holiday is all about.

Lovely choice of bouquets Beth, pretty colours. I think that cedar waxwings are very bonnie birds.
