Wow – those eggs and artichokes! Gorgeous photos Carol.

Yesterday I went to a different farmer’s market after meeting a friend for breakfast in Palo Alto. I splurged on pastured eggs – very excited to eat them this week!

Photos are fabulous! Might I ask what type of lens you are using (100MM, 60MM, etc…) I am almost ready to purchase one and I am so interested in what others are using, especially others that take GORGEOUS photos like you. Just beautiful. XX

Thank you, Wendy! I really appreciate your kind words. Mine is a Nikkor, 18-200mm lens. I absolutely love it, and use it for everything.

I know that you appreciate just how fortunate you are to have such bounty this early in the season. The sun is becoming stronger here…not enough to produce what your beautiful pics are showing, but enough to let us know that someday soon…someday soon.

Some day soon, some day soon — that’s my mantra for the midwest, dear Susie! Thank you for your sweet words. Here’s hoping that your recovery is continuing and speeding up, too. xo
