The classic view of Lake Mendota from Observatory Drive (by Elizabeth Waters)

As the weather gets colder, I thought I would (hopefully) cheer you up with these pictures (from a few weeks ago) of blooming flowers at the Farmer’s Market around the Capitol Square. One of the oldest and largest farmer’s markets in the country, the Dane County Farmer’s Market provides fresh, diverse, and affordable goods to the public. It is a feast for the senses- I love going to see all the colorful produce, smell the “hot spicy cheese bread!” and snag some free samples. It is also nice to realize that Madison is not only composed of college students- seeing families stroll around the Capitol Square, as my sister would say, “makes my heart happy”.
