Augusta Art in the Garden

We spent this past Saturday in Augusta, a beautiful northern Kentucky town right on the Ohio River. The weather was brutally hot, but we were quite comfortable set up under the most wonderful shade tree. We enjoyed looking out at the river, watching the ferry run and visiting with some of the nicest people. I brought my spinning wheel and Tim some fishing gear (no fish were harmed, although maybe a little scared ;-) and Augusta Art in the Garden will go down as one of our favorite shows. We look forward to returning next year.

On an interesting animal note, the geese in this photo apparently were protecting an injured bird. They might leave for a few minutes, but would come right back and encircled their friend. They know.

Meanwhile, back at the farm, Ewenice and Ewen were helping me clean horse stalls the other evening when a big storm blew in. Sheep apparently don’t appreciate thunder and lightning any more than Border Collies. I’m happy to report that while he’s gotten a bit hard to pick up, he will still fit on my lap :-).

Sounds like a great weekend. I had a great time at the Hoosier Hills Fiber Fest. If you ever get a chance you should go check it out. I got some nice fibery goodness.

So he is a lap sheep like my 112 lab thinks he is a lap dog. :)

Hey there. We're in good ol' KY right now. I'm going to be out of commission this weekend, but will be back to "normal" next week. I'll be in touch to come visit!!! Sorry you had the summer crud. I didn't think I had allergies all the years I've living in KY until I've been away for a while and returned! Give Ewenice and Ewan a snuggle for me and Maddie.
