Stop to smell the roses and the tomatoes

Sometimes I forget to stop and smell the "roses".

Years ago I can remember asking my Dad where he got the pale purple roses that were on the kitchen table. He rolled his eyes and replied "the front walk". Oops, how did I miss that! Right under my nose all the time.

I felt the same way the other morning when I picked up the newspaper and read that Aliante's Discovery Park has a Farmer's Market on Fridays. How many times do I pass that park and I missed that? Well, not this Friday. I can't wait. Produce can sometimes be kind of iffy here in Las Vegas. It seems like the Hotels and Casinos get the choice stuff.

A Farmer's Market in the neighborhood means I could possibly score a vine ripened tomato or some fresh corn on the cob for the weekend and that makes me happy.

The Farmer's Market is from 4:00 to 9:00 pm on Fridays. For more info check out http://www.ci.north-las-vegas.nv.us/DynamicContent/NewsEntry.cfm?NewsEntryID=2106.

Cross your fingers!!
