AMS - it's a dahlia. They're summer flowers so these are the first of the season!

We're surrounded by corn here in Nebraska. But you've put a whole new spin on it for me!

That's a great shot of that flower. Beautiful... and I want that spotty bowl the corn is in! ^_^!

Mary-Laure said...

NANCY - yes I think of corn as a late summer thing too, so I was surprised to see it at the market!

CHARLOTTE - I bought it for $2 at a yard sale...

Sammi said...

mmm, yum, corn.

Mary-Laure said...

WORLD IN A PAN - ah yes, I remember that pic and Fifi's wonderful work!

ROXANA - I looked them up and it said the season was June-October, so I guess they're astride on 2 seasons.

JANE - exactly, I wanted this post to celebrate the beauty of summer fresh from the market.

ABIGAIL - based on the comments here, I have the impression that we got the very first corn of the season here!

J'adore le corn a condition qu'il soit au prealable transforme en delicieuses charcuteries comme le "Jesus de Lyon" ou jambon ou saucisson...
