I love Cleveland -- and not just because the family and a good friend live there (although I probably wouldn't have discovered it without visiting them!). Here are Jane's hydrangeas -- so beautiful!
Only four hours from Lansing, it's an easy ride, and when it's long weekend time, you can't beat it! (As I mentioned before, I really need a vacation -- even if it's just a couple of extra days!)
Well, apart from great fun with family, catching up and all that, I wanted to take you with me to Shaker Market, which is located in Shaker Heights -- and Chagrin Falls.
Here are a few scenes from the market.
Tons of flowers -- I was very fond of the lilies.
'tis the time for planting!
And business was booming!
And of course wonderful fruits and veggies. I don't think I've ever had sweeter strawberries.
And the veggies were inviting, too!
I love watching the cooks, like the crepe maker.
Jane and I got a breakfast burrito, pastries and enjoyed the feast!
Then it was off to Chagrin Falls to see my friend Wally Parshall, who was exhibiting.
The fair was on the Chagrin River and it was lovely!
In the distance you can see its popcorn shop -- a celebrated spot!
And they have ice cream, too!
It's a lovely town -- both Shaker Market and Chagrin Falls are well worth a visit if you're in the area!
