Fall at Dallas Farmers Market goes to Outdoor Wednesday

Welcome to another Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan. Be sure to visit some of the others playing today. Thanks for hosting us again Susan. Here's the entrance of the Dallas Farmer's Market. Loved all of the mums planted in front of the very old tractor.
And my niece Mandy(How can she already be 24?). She was down for a visit this past weekend & we had such a great time running around. We went out to eat in many favorite places & after lunch at Burger House (YUM... the best burgers & fries in Dallas) we went to Farmers Market to see the flowers & pumpkins. Be sure to look at the post just prior to this one to see some amazing pumpkins.
Here is some of the MUMS all lined up by color. Don't you love the Dallas skyline in the back? I DO!
The way they had these staged by colors were so breathtaking!
I want about ten of everything. And the garden fairies to come & plant them. Well, we did buy a few pots of Mums & some pumpkins. Hope you'll stop by in a day or so to see what we bought & how they looked in our yard. HINT: We got one really BIG pumpkin! But, the darn rain has to stop before we can do our thing in the yard. Have a wonderful OUTDOOR WEDNESDAY!

WOW!!! Charlene that's a lot of pumpkins and mums! Don't you just love a Farmer's Market? Thank you so much for the visit and sweet messages!
My first slipcover was a nightmare, but then it got a little easier. I still prefer to have someone else do them, but these were easy peasy.
Hugs,
June

Enjoyed your showing of the Dallas Farmer's Market. They have really changed it up since I was there. I have not been in a long time, as I hate driving in that Dallas traffic. I live in FW. Happy you left a fellow Texan a nice comment.

Hi Charlene..thanks for the visit. I love your header with the old car and pumpkins..so cute! Looks like you are a busy lady, involved in lots of fun here on your blog.
I love this post, I would love to go to a place like this, I would want one of everything too!
Come say hi anytime :D

all those mums....what a beautiful sight!

PAT said...

This looks great! Sounds like a fun time, too!

My camera isn't very heavy until I get one of those big lenses on it. The photos I took for Outdoor Wednesday were done with a 70/200 and it is pretty big. Most of the time I use a smaller lens and it makes getting round with the camera easier. I haven't had any classes, I just learned in the school of hard camera knocks!LOL My granddaughter went to Rocky Mountain School of Photography last year and continues in college this year. We have lots to talk about.
Hope you find a great camera!

Hi Charlene!
What a fantastic Farmer's Market! And what a fun day, too!
Thanks for dropping by The Barnyard today. I do hope you come visit again at any of my blogs, but I'm usually at ladyfarmerparables.
About the vintage photos ~ I got them all at www.primprimitives.blogspot.com
They are some she gives away on older posts. I would love to see what you do with them.
Thanks, again, for dropping by!
Blessings!

Hello again, Charlene!
About the 'blackcaps'. They are a wild black raspberry ~ only a little smaller, dryer and seedier! I just love the flavor of them ~ they make fantastic jam!
Blessings!
