Meet Olive

today is market day.
and i brought home an olive tree.
and i named her olive.

it was a good day at the market.
saturdays are really crowded
but it makes it fun.

fresh dinde.

joel thibeault's stand
is probably the most popular.
i stood in line for a half hour 
waiting for fresh bay leaves,
sage and beets.
joel is a well known farmer here
and a descendant of one of the oldest families
of farmers around paris.
they call him the king of vegetables.
his aren't the prettiest vegetables 
at the market
but you can bet they are the most
he is always there with a smile on his face
chatting with the customers.

i love market day.

and thank you.
to all of you that left comments and
sent me emails after yesterdays post.
i do appreciate them so much!
today is a better day.
