Fresh from the Market

Last week's purchases were heavy on the purples and blacks, so this week I went in the other direction! Orange psiticorum are fine all year round, but are particularly nice at this time of the year. They are a type of heliconia, in the bird of paradise family which many of you are familiar with.

Lovely, fruity, fragrant freesia!

And chunky stems of hot peppers from Holland.
