Garden Style: Farmer's Market Finds

Going to our local farmer's market here in Burlingame is one of my favorite Sunday morning activities. Nearly everything is organic and fresh from the local farms and I usually come home with some really wonderful goodies. Last Sunday I came home with some lovely finds for floral arrangements. I bought some tuberose (one of my absolute favorite flowers), basil with florets, and chile peppers with a lovely vibrant color. I used the basil and peppers from the market, and added some zinnias, tomatoes and grape leaves from my garden to complete the "fresh from the market" look.
