The Market

Yesterday, MWNN and I went into town to buy some pelargoniums from the market. It being St George's Day, we expected Hitchin to be celebrating.

No Cross of St George on the church flagpole

People are enjoying the St George's Day weather in front of St Mary's.

So, what's wrong with this picture?

The market was very sparse for Market Day. Did I mention it was St Gerorge's Day?

 The market traders told us that vegetables were four weeks late this year.  English asparagus is very expensive as there is so little available.

We didn't find any pelargoniums, so bought provisions for lunch from Halseys.

Yes, the sky really was that blue.

It was a glorious day. Cherry blossom is just appearing.
