    I saw one hundred thousand shades of full blooms spread all over concrete parking lots, and sidewalks.  The Market was blooms on blooms, in flats & baskets, blooms on top of blooms. No, no, it was flower pedals, on baskets of pedals, in flats of pedals, all in full bloom!  This Farmers Market had colorful blooms at the top of racks, colorful blooms bulging at the middle of racks, rainbow  of blooms busting the rack at the seams, yellow pedal blooms, pink pedals at the tip of every flower stem. The multitude of colors was even covering the entire ground, spreading from the top north of the Market to the end tip near Gratiot Ave. Flowers on carts, in wagons, and flowers on the edge of tables. Full blooms were represented in many shades of many colors, southeast Detroit never looked so good from the moon!  Boom there goes hanging baskets, large, medium, and small, all different shades of color; beautiful, something for everyone. A bloom here an bloom there, matching color for every eye. Did I mention the Detroit Eastern Market had millions shades of peach color flowers, in every basket size, flats, tray,s pots big and small?

    The Detroit Market is a summer delight, bright and bustling with people and color.  The Michigan Detroit Eastern Market is another prolific destination for serious and devout gardening and flower enthusiasts.  It is the first spring destination because of it’s thousands bright vivid, wide range of multitude flats, baskets in full bloom.

    One rainy and chilly morning as I walked the Michigan Detroit Eastern Market, I spotted bundles of multi-colored blooms sitting in a thicket of color.  The morning air was filled and smelled of floral perfumes. Yes, this type of colors crammed in one spot is attractive as its density of color catches the eye toward blooms of pure beauty.  However, on this occasion, the thicket of color; yellows, pinks, reds, purples, and whites were covered, surrounded by a crowd of onlookers. This big bang of color gave the crowd an almost pinkish hew, a unique contrast with the Market of Full Blooms posing as all eye’s  of he crowd lusted at the floral center piece.  The on-lookers stared as though they had been hypnotized into a state of stoic admiration. As the crowd passed, along the full length of the long walkway, each person had a moment to be mesmerized. This “in full bloom” Michigan Detroit Eastern Market “busting with blooms” Flower Day spectacle, looks like an endless blooming Jewel.

    The above photos of full bloom at the Detroit Market may be the best sea of color a flower lover can experience, but I did manage to capture many  sceneries just before it all started to dissipate in hours by the hoards of full bloom, flower loving hoards of buyers.

    The sun had not yet fully rose and softly disturbed this morning beams on the full bloom scenery as the flowers location was spot lighted by the sun; flowers below, blooming twenty feet high, and the darling morning market was quite.  But this rainy cool morning was quickly about to change as the sun slowly rose, it brought in the anxious hoards who immediately encroached on the Northern Michigan Detroit Eastern Market’s location, the sun rays also quickly melted any light frost off the nearby branches on some shrubbery. I had to quickly gird up and try to press into the crowd to get this particular photo shot.
