They let us in AGAIN!!!

Yup, we are on vacation in the States.  This time in the state of Virginia.

We visited a Farmer's Market and as always it was very interesting.

One stall sold mushrooms.  The two bags at the back and the two bags at the front were Lion's Mane Mushrooms. There seems to be two spellings for that mushroom Mane and Maine.  They were selling for $10 USD a bag.  If I remember rightly she said they tasted like crab?  They have a website called Steve Haas Mushrooms.  Never saw Steve, just a lady.

There was a stall that just sold Orchids.  This one is a deciduous one and a rarer colour.  As I pointed out to dh, "this one drops it leaves on purpose, unlike mine!"  Mine drops it leaves through lack of attention!
Sunflowers are "happy" flowers don't you think?
More lovely flowers. 
Didn't buy anything, but did enjoy the market and the lovely weather.

That's funny!
And, yes, spelling is so inconsistent, and not to be trusted on-line!

I always love the market too Gill. So much colour and delicious flavours everywhere. I've never seen mushrooms like that lion's mane variety.
