Delicious autumn! ABC Wednesday arrives


We are already one quarter through the alphabet for ABC Wednesday bringing us to the letter 'H'--so I choose harvest to illustrate this letter with some photos I took yesterday at a farmer's market in the town I live in. It assembles every Tuesday and will go until mid-October. We are definitely seeing more fruits of the harvest now and yesterday one of the vendors was even giving everyone a free roasted ear of corn to eat while shopping.




Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. George Eliot

Visit Mrs Nesbitt who hosts ABC Wednesday each week. You'll be inspired and may want to join in the fun!

These are really beautiful photos. Every year Belgrade has sort of a harvest festival (I mean, since it's not a village, the stuff is brought in!) and features gourds, pumpkins, dried flowers... I love harvests!

Wonderful photos! Daddy used to say that autumn was his favorite season because of the fruits and vegetables in the market.

I've left a little something for you on my blog. XX Phyllis

You chose the perfect topic for H considering this is Harvest season. The pictures are very nice too.

I Agree with George Elliot....fall is the best. BTW....you didn't buy any of those "nasty beets" did you? Have a good week.

Harvest is perfect for the letter H. Love all those fresh vegies and the beautifully colorful flowers. Our farmers market will be wrapping up in mid October too. Sure wish they were open year round.
Happy ABC Wednesday!

One of the delights of Autumn is is bounty.

I'm so late visiting - sorry!
I love your harvest. I've always been very fond of harvest-time. The colours and the smells are so evocative.
I love your Michaelmas Daisies post below as well. These flowers have always had a place in my heart.
