Hey, another great day-many new visitors-a good hair day. I think Market goers respond to the fine weather-Everyone's happy and smiley and dancey-Kids cavort and giggle. Here are some hair pix. Check out the gigantic basket. Rara Avis

Saturday, May 15, 2010-Kids' Day

Kind of a sunny, cloudy, warm, chilly, breezy day-A normal Vermont day demonstrating every possible weather condition...Well.....It didn't snow or hail. We had another overflowing parking lot, with an overflowing overflow parking lot. We had singers, dancers, fiddlers, actors, drummers, pipers-We had it all. I guess its why we live here. Rara Avis.

Noshers noshed.

Kids played.

Dancers danced.

And danced.

How do they get stuff to grow so early in the season?

Warm enough for lemonade.

Chilly enough for long sleeved sweaters.
I think that's a small child slung around back.

The Attitude Adjustment Contingent.

Giddy organic farmers.

Kids' Day Kid.

And more Kids.

And yet another Kid.

Now, this is more like it-buckets, followed by barrels-of rain. Later in the day the rain abated and more visitors showed up. The band-Hot Mustard-regaled the crowd with fine bluegrass and western swing music. Praying for clear weather next week-no soggy cookies. Rara Avis

A perfect day to start the season. We actually hit that mythical point of "Nowhere left to park". Rock & Roll kid was there, Maypole-ers danced, Morris Musicians played. Many returning visitors talked about the significance of this first Market of the season, how it tells them that Spring is here, and how great it is to go outside again after the long Winter. I share their enthusiasm. For me, there is Market season, and not-Market season. I'm glad to be back once again. Rara Avis.
