Day 355: Caroller


Day 355: Caroller, originally uploaded by susanvg.

I love to go to the market any time of year. Each season has its charms. In spring it overflows with flowers for planting. The riot of colours and variety of flowers always make me linger longer. In summer the local produce appears with mouth-watering possibilities. Refreshing offerings to compliment the heat of summer. Autumn brings still more treasures. Pumpkins piled high in every shade of orange and barrels of apples of every variety.

And now, with Christmas almost here, there are stands of trees "growing" out of the snow. The air is scented like an evergreen forest. Poinsettias, wreaths and boughs are available to bring the festive feel to any home. And these whimsical characters add a touch of humour, reminding us that this is a time for joy and laughter.
