Musings and meanderings, poetic and otherwise, photography, travels, recipes, whatever comes my way that seems interesting to my gray matter!
Dried yellow corn looks so beautiful and it makes for a wonderful decoration of the meat shop. Happy Monday!

We love corn! Are those dried ones!Please come and see my Father & Son for MYM.
nice interesting shop
That is a beautiful picture! And you're makin' me hungry!
How very interesting Carmen, and I like the angle in your photo. It shows a bit of everything in the market.
How long does the butcher keep them up there? I decided I will have some pop corn. Can you drop down to you butcher and get me some. LOLYou Ok 100%?
This is the kind of place I miss. We don't have meat markets around here anymore. The last one I saw was only a few blocks from my house. The food from there is so much better than from a big chain grocery store.
beautiful take on the theme!
Mar -That bright yellow corn certainly drew me into this Lucca meat market!!LadyNoor -I just loved Lucca - not nearly as hectic as Florence but full of nice little shops and it had lots of wonderful squares.Rajesh -I was lucky enough to visit Lucca, Italy two consecutive years on my Mediterranean cruise. My friends and I stopped in Pisa in the mornings, then went to Lucca for lunch in the afternoon. It is such a charming Tuscan city.Shiju Sugunan -I spent my last two birthdays in Italy - in Rome for my birthday and a couple of days before, then did Mediterranean cruises. Lucca was one of my favorite spots - if my job hadn't ended, I had hoped to go back someday and spend a week.Poetic Shutterbug -Jo, you would really like Lucca, such a charming town, not nearly as big and bustling as Florence but a one of those places you want to linger for a few days. Friendly people, so much history, beautiful countryside.Manang Kim -Lucca, Italy is filled with wonderful little shops! Liz -I didn't take nearly enough pictures in Lucca. The whole place is so scenic and beautiful.Mrs4444 - Unfortunately, by the time we finished lunch, most of the shops in Lucca were closed for siesta. I wanted to take so many more photos!Dulce -I'll tell you, Italy was such a wonderful place for eating. I gained at least ten pounds during that two weeks!Stafford Ray -I've spent my last two birthdays in Italy - starting out in Rome for a few days, then on to do Mediterranean cruises, ending with a few days in Barcelona. I love Italy - still have so much of it I haven't seen but, sadly, the job loss means I won't be able to do that.clubskulit -Yes, that's dried corn hanging from the ceiling of the shop in Lucca. I'm a corn lover, too - like it grilled with all kinds of spices!sm -Lucca, Italy is a charming Tuscan town filled with quaint little shops and wonderful restaurants. It is also the birthplace of Giacomo Puccini.
Mar -It was that bright yellow corn that first drew me into that Lucca meat shop!LadyNoor -I was on a cruise ship so I wasn't in the market to buy meat but I was drawn in because it was so charming.Rajesh -Lucca, Italy is filled with the most charming little shops and it is famous for its olive oil.Shiju Sugunan -I had just eaten lunch or I would have been tempted by some of the sandwiches the shop offered.Poetic Shutterbug -Jo, you would love Lucca. I was there both last year and the year before and I found it so charming. Less hustle and bustle than Florence but some of the same good shopping for less expensive prices.Manang Kim -It was siesta time so many of the shops were closed. Otherwise, we would have spent a lot more money!
