And So It Begins...

The Downtown Farmers Market started on May 3, much to our delight. Julie and I met up at the usual place, by Baltimore Dog Bakery, at the usual time: 8:00 a.m. We were joined by our friend Elizabeth and some gals from her and Julie's cookbook club.
It was a miserable morning, cool and rainy. Not just a little misty rain, but a chucking down rain. There were not too many vendors there, mainly because it's a late spring and there's not a lot in the fields yet.
I bought two bunches of lilacs, one white and one, uh... lilac. Didn't take pictures of them, but took some of other flowers and the lack of crowds.

Yay for a a fun trip (nevertheless wet) trip to the market! I'm betting the weather is going to be awesome this sunday. I can't wait to pick out plants for my mama!
