Peppers Everywhere

This post inspired by May photo a day challenge

The prompt: Colorful

 

peppers everywhere

 

It was a cold gray dreary February day. No color to be found outside…other than brown, white and dark green peeking out from snow covered evergreens.

As I wandered through the produce section of a local grocery store (aptly called Market Basket), a rainbow of peppers caught my eye.

I imagined the security camera recording the image of a bundled up lady taking pictures of vegetables with her phone. Was she an undercover “Mystery Shopper”? (as I once was twenty years ago). Or from the Health Department? Or just capturing the perfect image to illustrate…Peter Piper Picked a Peck of….?

Or just because that pepper display was gorgeous…

I digress.

Vegetables = colorful. As well as being full of vitamins, minerals, nutrients, fiber and all kinds of good stuff you can’t get in a pill or a powder. No matter what the advertisers tell you.

Definitely a sight for my color starved eyes in the middle of winter.

The countdown to spring weather continues…getting more and more intense with each snowy, freezing cold day. At least in my neighborhood.

As I was wandering down the aisles at the local discount store recently…
Past the fleece gloves. Leather gloves. Mittens.
Ear warmers. Neck warmers. Hand warmers.
Long knit scarves. Boot socks. Ice scrapers.
And the discounted Christmas elf knick knacks and dust covered heart shaped boxes of expired Valentine’s candy…

I spotted the following display…
