Nice Flowers


Extra large carrots
The day before Cindy left for California, we did a whirlwind last-ditch tour of some final sites including the Nice flower market where color is the order of the day.  The temperature had plummeted, announcing the arrival (finally) of autumn and winter.  We were prepared, however, and weren't any the worse for wear while enjoying the fares.
Colorful radishes

The flower market sells more than
flowers.  The carrots and the radishes are just as colorful as the tulips.

The grapes and strawberries were nicely juxtaposed with the fall vegetables of cabbage, cauliflower and squash.

And since we miss our sweet bichon, our white dog radar is mighty acute.  These four really didn't have any interest in the the richness of the colors or the freshness of the produce.  They were only interested in the opportunity for doggie socializing. 
Visiting bichons
Why we waited so long to check out the Nice market is beyond me, and surely the warmer weather would be more welcoming.  But there's a lot to be said for "off season."  And since we arrived early enough, the crowds were very manageable and we could enjoy the market the way it should be.
