When a gardener goes to the State Fair, in this case, the Indiana State Fair…
She takes note that it is the “Year of the Tree”.
So they decorated the gazebo top to look like… a tree house?
In the Home & Arts building, she finds a cake that looks like it was made just for her.This is for someone’s retirement.
When there is a brief rain shower, she directs everyone with her to seek shelter in the HortAg Building.No one will want to go out into the rain, so they won’t realize how much time she spends looking at all the vegetables and flowers.
She sees all these tomatoes but is disappointed that there is no “ugliest tomato” category.It’s just as well, she would have won.
She’s proud to see a banner for her alma mater.Yes, really, the Purdue University School of Agriculture. Boiler up!
Eventually, she leaves the plants behind and goes to see the chickens.Doesn’t every gardener want a couple of chickens in their backyard, especially fancy ones like these? Well, at least Robin(Bumblebee) is getting some chickens.
She tries to talk to the rabbits, but they are having nothing to do with her.Have the rabbits read about May Dreams Gardens?
In the cow barn, she eyes the beginnings of a beautiful garden.It’s a cow pie!
Did that cow just say, “Moo, this poo’s for you?”
A good time was had by all.
I hope you get a chance to go to your state fair. The Indiana State Fair continues until Sunday, August 17th. Go if you get the chance. Robin of Robin’s Nesting Place finally went, check out her beautiful pictures!
Reminder that tomorrow is the 15th, time for another Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day. It’s easy to participate.
