Seen at the Market: Spring

It was a beautiful, sunny day in the Bay Area today and I was out at the farmers market at the Ferry Building in San Francisco. One of the fun things about farmers markets is the fresh flower stands. At this time of the year, there are tons of tulips. It's one of my favorite flowers. It's always nice to have some fresh flowers at the table to go with your dinner made with produce from the farmers market.

And looks like I'm not the only one with that idea. This is the first time I've ever seen such a long line at the flower stand at the market. A definite sign that spring is just around the corner. (BTW, don't forget to "spring forward" and set your clocks forward tonight. Gosh, I'm like a public service announcement.)

I feel like I'm in Amsterdam with all these tulips. And just for fun, my friend Stella sent me this amazing online flower garden site. Go visit it here and click anywhere in the black canvas... then see your garden grow. Bring on spring!
