Fresh mushrooms


I’m back from Europe and went to the Del Ray Farmers’ Market early this morning to restock my empty fridge with fresh fruit and veg. This stall sells nothing but mushrooms, all but one variety (I forget which!) locally grown.

A million thanks to Marie McC of Alexandria Daily Photo for posting while I was in Europe and to all of you who commented on her gorgeous pictures. I had prepared draft posts for Marie, but we didn’t know about one Blogger setting that needed to be activated (Blogger doesn’t make it easy), so while she could see the list of posts, she couldn’t actually post them! So in addition to posting for her own blogs, Marie prepared posts to cover this one too.

    I like your photographs. We have a monastery not far from there, in Berryville, Virginia. Many thanks for your pix – James

    Welcome back. Mushrooms–I go to our Farmers Market every Saturday while my husband sleeps, but have never seen mushrooms for sale.

    Je suppose que vous appréciez de pouvoir retrouver vos habitudes après ces quelques jours passés sur le “vieux” continent…

    Nous aurons probablement le plaisir de découvrir dans les prochains jours vos impressions sur ce voyage et, bien entendu, beaucoup de photos !!!

    Dans l’immédiaat, je crois qu’il convient effectivement de remercier Marie, votre “remplaçante” durant les quelques jours de votre absence, car la mise en ligne quotidienne de messages sur un blog est un travail astreignant et elle s’y est consacrée à merveille. Merci donc à elle…

    It was fun stepping into the breach while Passante was away. Always nice to have another good reason to go somewhere new and take more photos.

    Didier, mille fois merci pour votre gentils sentiments!

    Welcome back. How was the trip? And how was Lille?

    In recent years, each time I go to Europe — my birthplace — I leave a little of my heart behind when I return to the USA. Tomorrow (Sunday), I’ll start posting my impressions of my latest visit, this time to London and Lille, on my other blog, Passante’s World, at
