Country Market-The Changing Seasons 12

It’s all about the festive red and green at the Country Market this month! Vibrant poinsettias and fresh Christmas Trees fill the greenhouse and line the lot. The scent of pine fills the air. The market is a busy place, helping customers select the perfect tree and ringing up the holiday sales.

I also noticed that there was a sign advertising the sale of the market itself. A clerk told me that there were no definite plans to sell right now. Whatever the outcome, I hope the market stays open and keeps its country feel. I have enjoyed stopping by each month to see seasonal changes, make purchases and capture the simple beauty of the market.

I plan to make a wrap up of select photos before the end of the year. I understand that the Cardinal plans to continue this challenge, with some minor changes, next year! I better start scouting for a new location. This is my twelfth installment for Cardinal Guzman’s Monthly Photo Challenge. We are to post 5-20 pictures each month at a nearby location to showcase the changing of seasons and hone our photography skills. You should check out his photos and the links that he posts to other entries you may also enjoy viewing. You can see my previous galleries by clicking on the Changing Seasons header at the top of this page. Think about joining us next year as the challenge continues!

Merry Christmas and Season’s Greetings to you all!

    wonderful shots!


  2. I’m not a fan of Poinsettias in pots, though have to admit in mass like this they do look rather cheerful. My objection is they are soon rather tatty and neglected and then abandoned and I feel sorry for them. It has been fun to see the Country Market throughout the year and I look forward to seeing where you go next year 🙂

    • I know what you mean. One year I tried to keep a poinsettia and revive it the next year but it didn’t work! Thanks for watching the market changes! Now, I’ll have to scout a new location. Have you picked one yet? I’m gonna go check out your seasons post now!
