Entrance area to the downtown flagship store of Austin's most world-famous natural and organic foods supermarket (supermarket! not grocery store! I do like it when European words turn up over here), Whole Foods
. It is easy to make fun of Whole Foods. They are so unashamedly unapologetically ginormously extravagantly Texas, and yet they have the same name as a hundred (OK, maybe there were only actually twenty) health food shops of the 1970's. I am not what you would call an environmental activist, but I cannot help wondering what original flower children would have thought of this place. They have lovely food though. Really very good indeed. As you can see, they are also selling bags of compost outside, and they have covered their security entrance doors with twigs for some reason. Twigs. Isn't that great?!
PS Also, notice all those wind chimes just inside! I could make more fun of those too. But I won't. Not only do we have some ourselves, all the grocery stores do wind chimes here, including the humble HEBs.
