Summer in San Francisco

Two of the three birdies of Three Fat Birdies live in a neighborhood in San Francisco called the Sunset.  For those of you who have never been to the Sunset, you might assume that the Sunset is, well, sunny.  But you would be mistaken.  This is what summer looks like in San Francisco:

The Outer Sunset - no sun, only the marine layer 

Fog and telephone wires - the only view you get on most mornings

It's the end of AUGUST, people.  Even by San Francisco standards, this summer has been ridiculously gloomy.  Luckily, even when it's 50 degrees out, and you're bundled up in your thickest scarf and a pair of gloves and your favorite Three Fat Birdies beanie, there are still things you can do to make it  feel like summer.

You can go to your local farmer's market!  Even when it's cold outside, there's something about ripe produce and colorful flowers that makes it feel more like summer.

The Inner Sunset Sunday Farmer's Market

Nothing says summer like juicy heirloom tomatoes.  As soon as I track down some fresh basil, I'm making caprese salad!

Look at that gorgeous color!

Fresh flowers are a great way to brighten up your house, even on the cloudiest morning.
Now if only it would get warm enough for me to wear a sundress!
