Globe Thistles at the Farm Market
I tried to imagine how I would use these dried thistles if I bought some. They had handsome deep yellow yarrow, too, but I was having trouble making an arrangement in my mind.
Bill's Farm Market is the one place I have found where I can get a few of my beloved Macintosh apples every year. The apples of my childhood, they are the apples that truly taste like apples should taste! Crisp, and just faintly sour, or acid. S says they are too sour, but he doesn't have a childhood apple. The Fuji apple seems too sweet to me, and the texture is too grainy. I admit they keep well, ship well and are very crisp, but I hope to have a bag of Macintosh apples every season as long as I can chew!
