Farmer's Market

My daughter and her family live in Amherst, Massachusetts.   There is a great farmer's market that's there every Wednesday throughout the summer, in a park near their home. I love going there not only for the fresh produce, but also for the atmosphere.


Everything is organic and from local farms which are plentiful in Western Mass.




This week I wandered around looking for inspiration for dinner. Here is what I came home with.


Sure, they’ll taste great in a salad or sauteed in olive oil.  But, what really struck me were the fantastic colors. After all, some of my favorite color palettes are nature inspired.



Here are some paint colors from Lowe's that were apparently inspired by nature. These are from their Olympic line of paints and are available in regular or no-VOC. A bedroom would look great in a soft green like this Aloe Vera, with doors in deep Purple Basil. If I were painting a dining room I might go for the Pumpkin Pleasure with chairs painted in a glossy deep Gooseberry and the ceiling in soft Aloe Vera.  How about a child's room with walls a modulation of stripes going from Orange Poppy to the lightest shades of orange on the card and furniture painted the soft Aloe Vera?  Hmmm...maybe it's time to redecorate.
