First Phinney Farmers Market of the Year

What’s up with today’s solid cloud cover?
After a full week of sunshine, I had started to think summer was really here and was looking forward to a sunny afternoon at the Phinney Farmers Market season premier. But the strings and accordion of Tinker’s Dram, a local group playing traditional and original tunes, brightened up the market. When I like the music, I’m torn between sketching and tapping a toe, since I can’t do both (unless I want jiggly lines).
I need to take a lesson in doing two things at once from the performer I sketched on my way out. He played both a banjo and kazoo, the latter strapped to his head, simultaneously, as well as a third horn-like instrument, also attached to his head.

On my drive home, the scent of my first local strawberries of the year filled the car. Who needs sunshine? Summer’s here.
