gratitude-a-thon day 159: the west tisbury farmer’s market

One of the best parts of the Vineyard is the West Tisbury Farmer’s Market. Not only is it filled with great stuff to eat, from local farms and bakeries, it’s got flowers. BEAUTIFUL, INCREDIBLE FLOWERS. I just love to be there and look around, because it’s like a really fattening dessert for my eyeballs.

Stannard Farm’s display is poetic. Really, this truck looked like a painting.

I’ve been buying flowers from this guy for like 20 years. I don’t know his name, but he’s a sweetie.

I always buy a topiary while I’m here. This year I bought a really cool one–it’s a scented rose geranium. You rub the leaves and it gives off this fantastic smell that’s supposed to ward off mosquitoes, which is really good, CUZ IN ALL THIS RAIN, THOSE GUYS ARE HAVING A LOT OF SEX AND MAKING MORE OF THEMSELVES.
