Continuing onward from yesterday's post the Farmer's market is not only equipped for the adult population but also geared towards the youngsters with everything from food, clowns with balloons and even an enclosed mobile trampoline for their enjoyment.

May and June are huge months for graduations where students travel to and form various functions in hired limousines. A somewhat expensive venture but one that affords peace of mind for parents and relatives.

Looking out the window upon our arrival at home, we couldn't help but notice this rainbow. Might that be a good omen?

One last photo before we land on the home front. Thought this cherry display at the Market was an ingenious work of art.

Our unusually coolish weather this spring brought forth a plethora of wildflowers on the mountain slopes. Under normal conditions our winter is short, the weather dry and the warmth discourages such an abundant display.

Garage Sale

Garage sales are a sure tell tail sign that spring is here. This one was held at one of the local gated communities where residents gather their over accumulated purchases and display them on their driveways at prices that are but a pittance of the original cost.
