A Day In the Country

Well, Puyallup and Sumner aren't exactly "in the country", but they are small towns surrounded by rural areas with real farms. When we want to get out of town, these are near by destinations. And today was a perfect time to get away, because everything is aglow with the colors of autumn.
Puyallup has a Saturday market, our first destination. The market is winding down as the growing season comes to an end, but there were still many colorful and tasty items for sale.
The beauty of ornamental trees greeted us in the parking lot.
The roadsides and hills are alive with color.


  1. fun to come along to the open air market and see the produce-love those pepper wreaths, nice autumn colors, wonderful time of year to enjoy.

  2. How beautiful all the produce and flowers are...what a splendid area you live in Linda...

  3. Oh Wow, Linda! I wish I could be there with you. The fall colors are so striking. I love it! It's just raining over here but that's Hawaii for you. The veggies at that market are magnificent.

  4. Wonderful photos of the Fall colours and I especially liked all of your market photos of the produce. - Dave
