I love green gladiolas.

"Sticks on fire" amuse me enough that I feel compelled to announce "sticks on fire!" every time we pass a garden in our complex that has some. This is an individual stick on fire. An award-winning stick on fire.

The flower arrangements are interesting because they usually leave out the card with the judges' comments. The frame on this one was said to be distracting. I suppose I agree, but it's what made me come over to look in the first place.

DSCF4608
A diner scene, with everything made out of flowers. The stools, the pies, the sundaes, all flowers.

In the garden area they also have bonsai, and Hon Non Bo, and... this thing that is about rock appreciation. Here are some rocks to appreciate.

DSCF4630
The little one in its little individual dish of sand was oddly intriguing.

I couldn't take pictures in the painting exhibit, but outside they had a place where you could make your own art on little cards.

Hi, Peaches!

We celebrated our nation's birthday by watching people partake in the great American tradition of smashing cars.

These llamas were named Moonspinner and Bouquet d'Amour. Really.

Bandaloni, the one-man band.

GIANT HOT DOG. It was kind of disturbing to behold, actually.

DSCF4821
GIANT TURKEY LEG. Overhyped.

A flower basket... made out of tiny cupcakes.

DSCF4832
Let's smash some more cars!

Chapman stick guy. We see him at the fair every year, usually multiple times. It's nice mellow music to listen to while sitting in the garden.

DSCF4854
This year's fair theme was cars, so they had a special car exhibit. This was a custom Star Wars car.

DSCF4855


DSCF4857
Teeny tiny smart car.

DSCF4860
Herbie!

It is, as you can tell, a very big fair. It runs for a good three weeks, there's enough stuff going on there to fill a couple of days (which we did). The food was a little disappointing this year, though I suppose any year when Ken doesn't get food poisoning is a good year. At least we did end with... wait for it...

DSCF4641
MINI DONUTS.

Until next year!
