Totnes Market on Friday :)

I'm afraid that I haven't found tme for blogging this week so I'll try to post a few this weekend to make up for it ...

The Friday market is always colourful and full of goodies but this week I just had to take a pic. of these flowers from "The Walled Garden". I'd noticed a big bunch in The Tangerine Tree cafe earlier in the week and was determined to track them down and buy some. It's just the way I'd like my garden to look but of course that is extremely unlikely to happen, at least whilst I still have the shop. So a bit of virtual floral border will have to do for the moment.

It's been a delight to see the new series of flowery paintings develop in Art Rooms opposite my shop. Jo (artist and gallery owner) is currently inspired by the spring colours along our Devon lanes and every day seems to bring a new delight on canvas! Do pop in to see her if you are passing :)
There's a link to Jo's website with the Look Art Rooms picture in the right column of this blog.

... and finally, a rare pic. of Mr. Fixit as he goes off up the ramp to visit the upsatirs Flea Market. If you visit Totnes on a Friday don't forget to pop up there!


  1. They are just beautiful xxx

  2. What glorious flowers! I missed coming to Totnes on Friday as husband had a hospital appointment but hope to be there next Friday! With my camera, too! And I want to have a browse in the flea market (husband found some old calipers there last week with which he was delighted! That's calipers as in measuring devices for round objects.
    The flower paintings are lovely - they actually remind me of needlework/collages!
