Back at the Market, Sunday Aug. 31

I'll be back at the Market this Sunday, after my hiatus during the EX. While the Ottawa Farmers' Market was relocated to Sylvia Holden Park, I enjoyed selling at other festivals and Art in the Park events. Before and after I set up, I like to check out this sculpture by Tim DesClouds, The Cows Fly Home on Sunday, situated on a pole outside the "Cattle Castle". The following poem is on the plaque below:
The Cows Fly Home on Sunday
Wind from the east, is bad for man and beast,
Wind from the south, is too hot for them both,
Wind from the north, is of very little worth,
Wind from the west, is softest and best. Old Farmer's Almanack, 1851
