Our World!

Time for "Our World" again! This is a wonderful way to find the beauty, the fun, the good and even the bad things about Our World and to share them! Hope you will join us!   One of the places in Seattle that I do MISS!! The public market!!

 Happiness depends more on the inward disposition of mind than on outward circumstances.

That's the most deliciously colourful collage I've seen in a while Sylvia :) hopefully you'll be able to find a market in Portland oui :)

Reader Wil said...

I agree with Benjamin! And I love the flowers . The temperature here is now so high that I have to water the plants in my garden.
Have a great and sunny week, Sylvia.

It has been a while since I visited the public market in Seattle but what an interesting and entertaining experience it was! You bring back fond memories of much vitality, pizzazz and produce galore. :)

What a precious picture your header is today. And thank goodness for the invention of the wheel! Your post reminds me that we start off in strollers, graduate to bicycles and sometimes end up in wheelchairs. :)

Such wonderful bounty. We are all so lucky!

Yes, we visit that market each time we visit Seattle. We usually escape without spending too much money. I still have some photos from my last visit that I need to post.

Beautiful Sylvia -- there's nothing quite like Pike St., but I hope you find some good Farmer's Markets in your new neighborhood.

Rajesh said...

Beautiful and colorful.

I thought it looked like the Pike Place Market, and I see, above, that it is. The colors are just fantastic, aren't they, Sylvia?

Is there no market in Portland or at least a farmer's market near by?
Wherever we are, we miss something from somewhere else.
Best to enjoy what you have.

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
