Lucky Finds and Weekend Markets

I love flea markets, fresh produce markets and weekend markets :) Luckily there are quite a few of them around where I live.  May is when many of the local farmers markets will be opening for the season. I can hardly wait. There are a few markets that are open year round. I usually stop by these markets to pick up fresh flowers. Sometimes, there are others things that there to tempt me :) I found this little statue for just 4 bucks! It is actually quite small but I love the carving and the serene expression.

Spring is upon us and the city is turning green. I wish I could capture how alive, fresh and beautiful everything looks. Sadly, the cherry blossoms are on their way out. However, the sight of them always makes me stop dead in my tracks. I took the second picture with my phone while walking around the lake. The wind has been gusting and there is a carpet of these blossoms by the side of the road. This was one of the few trees still in bloom.

Here's wishing you a great week ahead!
