Ingredients

FarmersMktJune30 004

A recent Daily Post Prompt asked about Ingredients, and the one item in our kitchen we “can’t possibly cook without.”  It could be a treasure from a relative, food etc.   My answer is vegetables, lots of different kinds of vegetables.  Every day.  I cook with olive oil.

I made a different kind of list yesterday, for craft supplies to buy here and there.  There was a nice discussion in the comments for my post about knitting.  Thank you.

The photo is by Karl, from another summer.  We went to the Sheboygan Farmers Market.

Photo Challenge – colors of the rainbow

The WordPress Photo Challenge this week asks for all the colors of the rainbow:  red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.

So I am going to see if my photos so far can meet this challenge – at least as I see the colors.

For orange, I took a close up photo of part of my Cezanne needlepoint picture.

I think indigo is another color in this painting.

Sometimes I also see indigo along the horizon.
