An early March pick-me-up
One thing I like to do for added inspiration and a pick-me-up is take the 45 minute trip to visit Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. Everything in those stores is fresh and vibrant. I love the frozen, prepared foods at Trader Joe’s and the freshly made ones at Whole Foods. I walk along the freshly prepared food case at Whole Foods picking out a little of each item, enough to feed us for a few days. There’s so much variety and it never disappoints. My two favorite foods at Whole Foods are the goat cheese/honey/walnut/cranberry spread and the Vietnamese spring rolls with peanut dipping sauce.
Both stores have an amazing display and selection of flowers.
I picked up both Gerbera daisies and daffodils. The daffodils were just $1.75 a bunch at Trader Joe’s. Daffodil pics to follow in a later post.
I took several photos (24-70mm lens at 70mm, f/2.8) and these were my favorites.
Looks can be very deceiving. On this particular day it was 20 degrees Fahrenheit and we are still surrounded by snow. The bright sun on my front porch makes it look as if it’s summer.
Yesterday, the top photo was featured on a great photo blog Mortal Muses. Check it out.
