Saturday Snapshots -- Spices

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post on Alyce's blog At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

Today I'm taking another picture from Grace's travels. These are from the market in Aix en Provence. Something about these spices just says exotic:

And up close, they just make me want to dig my hands in and watch them pour through my fingers.

Those bright colored spices are so beautiful! They do make me want to dig in (like colorful clay). :)

That is really cool... who knew spices could be beautiful!

The spices look so inviting and delicious! The colors are so vibrant and beautiful. I agree with you, I'd love to run my fingers through them and smell the, too!

Is there a simple way of learning how to use spices like which spice belongs to fish, chicken, lamb, etc...?

Pooch said...

Mmmmm. I can almost smell the aromatic atmosphere.

:)

Louise said...

The colours are so wonderful. They are very tempting. I love seeing them displayed this way. So much more enticing than packets.

Karen Harrington said...

Leave it to the French to make spice display a work of art!

Irene said...

How spectacular the fragrances must be.

Linda said...

Ah, the spices for sale at the Aix market. Brings back great memories.
