ABC Wednesday!


Guess what? It's time to play ABC Wednesday, hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt in Australia! Click here to sign up and play with the alphabet and the rest of us photo happy bloggers!

Today the letter is P as in the Partridge in a Pear tree!



Purple roses from Pike's Market! These are real, not fake. Dye is injected into the stem prior to blooming and this is what happens!



Peppers from Pike's Market and Pink and Purple Posies!





So, let's Party on!

Purple and blue roses, what is the world coming to. As if nature doesn't have enough choice all by itself.
Great photos though!

I have come to know Pike Market well virtually through bloggers, especially the fruit and veg. Love your choice today, I miss markets here and these colours just pop.

Prime Photos. Poor me, I'm off for some Pigeon Pie. Pooh!

Plenty P post.

Pike's is a must-go-to whenever we visit Seattle, and these pictures capture its spirit if not the scent of seafood and the hoot of ferries.

Rose said...

We're thinking along the same lines, today, Sylvia:) Perfect pinks and purples! I always wondered how they got those strange colors of roses.

Shannon said...

Wow, such pretty colored roses. I can't wait for our farm markets to open around here. I love all the fresh goodies.

Janie said...

Lots of great P words. I always wondered how they made purple and blue roses. Glad to have that mystery solved.

Pike's Market is an awesome place (this is the one in Seattle, right?). I would be there every week if I lived anywhere close by! Thanks for the pics. The purple roses were awesome!

Love your pink and purple posies. Good post for the letter P.

Perfect P's. Amazing Pike Street florals. I remember when they first started doing that with carnations but had no idea they'd moved on to roses. :) Great post!

Jama said...

Interesting colours on the roses, I would love the blue roses!

Bradley Hsi said...

The Pike's market is so colorful and fresh. Must be a good place to visit and shop.

Lilly said...

Oh my Sylvia I have NEVER seen dyed roses before. What a sheltered life I clearly must lead.

Pat - Arkansas said...

A wonderful selection of items for your "P" post! Well done.

Perfect post! Have a great day, Sylvia :)

Pike's Market is such a fun place. We came to Seattle last weekend to go to a baseball game at the university. When we got up the next day it was raining (big surprise, right?) so we headed back to Bellingham without any sightseeing. My contribution this week is a pool. I invite you to come over and float around on my pool toy. - Margy

Joy said...

I'm so excited about the prospect of fresh local vegetables soon! The flowers and gorgeous here. Love your photography!

Kay said...

I couldn't believe how reasonably priced those huge flower bouquets were. They were absolutely gorgeous at Pikes Place Market.

Gordon said...

A very colourful post for P. The concept of injecting dye into the stems intrigues me.
