Little Piggies, Take your Mark!

Washington County, Minnesota Fair

Mark your calendars!  The Washington County Minnesota Fair begins in less than two weeks!  The dates for the fair this year are July 31st-August 4.

I prefer the county fair to The Minnesota State Fair as it has all the essentials with smaller crowds…

The county fair has all the animals…

Best of all…It has the Pig Races!

It is an American tradition to attend the yearly fairs.  I’m wondering what other countries celebrate similar events??

Hope you have time for a quick jaunt to your local fair this summer!

I’m betting on #2–he’s seems determined to win the Oreo!

The Star of the Garden This Week

There is a clear star in our garden this week:  The Alaskan Daisy.

We planted a few daisies several years ago, and last year we split and moved them to a different area in the garden.

Apparently, they are  very happy in their new home because they are flourishing!

I love daisies.  I prefer them even to roses.  (My grandmother would be so disappointed.  She loved roses…in fact her name was Rose.)

At least I inherited her love of flowers! (and for quilting.)

What’s the star of your garden this week?
