State Fair Chapter Four

Best part of the fair? The traditional crafts area. Spinning, weaving, a working log cabin, broom making. Awesome. I bought a hand made broom. Awesome.

The Midway from atop the Ferris Wheel! We’re midwayed out, and heading to the NYS products, the International Pavilion, and possibly … lunch!

State Fair Chapter One

Did we all know I’d spend quite a while in the poultry building? Had some NY State chocolate milk, and we’re headed for the Midway! I’m saving the foods-on-sticks for AFTER the rides!

Testing … Testing

What is this? What’s going on? Why are you looking at a random photo of the hen house?

It’s a Mobile Blogging Test. We’re going to be going to the New York State Fair  (and to visit with friends) this weekend, beginning Thursday. My music for Sunday is all practiced up, and we’re headed out tomorrow, coming back Saturday evening.

As for this particular post, I wanted to be able to mobile blog from the Fair … especially with photos! You’re currently looking at the test, and evidently, I’m all set up to blog from my cell phone.

I’ll be coming at you live from the Midway, the NY State Products Store, The Butter Sculpture, the Petting Zoo, the Agriculture building, the model homes … Which reminds me – Fair warning – I can only send one pic at a time, so there will be several posts this Friday. Hope it’s not too too irritating, in-box wise.

You have a great day too!

Success!

They’re here! The sunflowers are here! Hundreds of ’em. And a little bonus – because I planted three different varieties, some are behind the others schedule-wise, and we’ll have blooms for quite a while. The giants in the back should bloom in a few weeks if the weather holds out and we don’t have a hard frost.

You have a great day too!

Late Summer Blooms

The perennials have bloomed their last, the lily and hosta stalks are more and more brown each day, and the catnip is more silver than green these days. Yes Friends, my favorite perennial beds are nearly spent. However, the annuals I sprinkled here and there have taken up the slack. And the big patch of sunflowers? I’m predicting quite a spectacle in about three days!
