Village weekly market

This photo inspired a friend in Japan to write a Haiku:

morning market ;
flowers cast autumnal colour.

This morning we visited Sommacampagna weekly market. This little town is close to a tiny village where we used to live before moving into Verona, one year and a half ago. We used to come here almost every week to enjoy a quiet stroll, a coffee, newspaper reading and, of course, to buy some nice vegetables and fruits, cheeses and the occasional extra item, that could have been a fleece jumper or a bathroom rug or, say, a pair of stockings. Many times my "extra item" was a plant which I liked to pick up at this florist's.

I love this photo. It's perfectly captured and the colors are amazing. I especially love the fabric design and color of the tent above the flowers.

I think it is nice to stroll there in the fresh air of morning.
I might compose some Haiku.

I like that this photo is shot a little lower than normal height.

looks so peaceful! Not like the markets here.

Non credo tu possa capire quanto è grande la voglia di essere lì, un mattino, insieme a te.
