Down A Country Road

Today was the perfect moment to take a ride
a country road to buy an orange tree .

You never know what you will find
what will have to come home with you at a small town
Farmer's Market .

Along with the perfect orange tree ( oh be still my heart )
new potatoes and fresh green beans
hummus and pita bread
fresh cream and chocolate croisants
came home with me !

Oh ! The Texas Longhorn stayed right where it was !

I wonder what would have come home with you ?



  1. Oh that sounds like so much fun! We need our snow to melt and spring to come first! lol.

  2. What a wonderful way to spend the day...did you get the little orange tree?

  3. I don't think the farmer's market is even happening in Arizona yet...but will be in a month or two...looking forward to them..

  4. Thanks for taking us along! My neighbors two longhorns are about to have their calves, I can't wait!

    Yay for hummus and pita bread!

  5. I think that longhorn has the biggest horns I've ever seen! All the things you mentioned could happily come home with me!! =)

  6. Dottie, visiting our Farmers market is one of my favorite things to do. Enjoy your orange tree!.And I am looking forward when ours will be full of fresh plants and veggies.

  7. That sounds like a fabulous farmer's market!

  8. Dottie, everything would come home with me too - except the orange tree.
    We have the wrong climate to grow them in my area!
    But I love the heady scent of orange blossoms and miss it where I live now :-)

  9. Everything you bought sounds wonderful, hummus and pita bread .... yum!

  10. That sounds so good and enjoyable. Those horns are massive. I love the Farmer's market too. I love seeing what people grow and make. It's all there for the sharing.

  11. Oh how I wish I could grown an orange tree-enjoy:@)

  12. you make it all sound so fabulous and that texas longhorn...wow. Never seen anything with horns like that...

  13. Oh love your simple pleasure...and as a native Texan...the Longhorn was the best...doesn't he look so strong and mighty!
    Orange tree...enjoy!

  14. Oh, Dottie, I can't WAIT for the outdoor markets to open again.Right now, we are all still pretty much buried in snow. Loved reading about all the great things you brought home. Take care. Susan

  15. Someday I want to have a fruit tree or two. Nothing like fresh fruit picked by your own hand. :) Everything you came home with sounds perfect to me. Great simple pleasure!

  16. Sounds like a PERFECT spring outing. We are still deep in snow. ((sigh)) Looking at all your spring pictures make me long for those wonderful first spring days. It will come. [0=


  17. It sounds like a perfectly wonderful outing to me, Dottie.

    I would have brought home what you did.
    EXCEPT I would have omitted the green beans and substituted broccoli.

    Fun simple pleasure!

  18. I wonder how heavy those horns are, they look cumbersome don't they? Looks like a lovely spring day in your part of the world.

  19. One of the highlights of summer is visiting the farmer's market. Always such fun.

  20. Well sister I know what I'd come home with if I visited you at your house and that is Miss Addie. I feel a trip to the Goodwill coming on, cause we're getting all our seed planted by this weekend and someone will need to watch over it. Hugs, Mollye

  21. Hi Dottie,
    Your Farmers Market sounds fantastic.I love going to places like this.I have to keep a tight reign on my enthusiasm ---- go with a list AND stick to it,'cause I'd like to bring a bit of everything home.

  22. With green grass and warm weather, it is no telling what I would have brought home.....I love places like that.

  23. I am not sure what I would have come home with, but I can assure you that it would have been too much. When everything looks so good and fresh it is hard to resist.
