Common Ground Country Fair, Maine

A wonderful way to celebrate the fall is with a trip to the Common Ground Fair

You can buy all kinds of good food.

Lots of people wear Sweet Annie Crowns.

They wear all kinds of fun things.

We took a wagon ride.

More funny hats.

The kids always have a good time.

My favorite - the llamas!

Katie & Raf enjoy the strawberry cream puffs.

I always try some of the lamb.

Judy likes to check out the wool.

And the yarn too.
Judy and I sampled the Apple Pie Cones.  Delicious!

Waterville Maine Community Garden Club Beautifies Oakland

We took on a new project this fall - The planters in Oakland, Maine.  We decorated them with mums, ornamental grasses, and kale for the fall season

Jackie wheels the mulch donated by Blake's Hardware down Main Street


Here comes Shirley with a barrel full of mulch

What is Shirley doing in that barrel?

Nothing like some mums to brighten up the town

The original horse trough from 1900

Laura Pierce, owner of Pierce's Nursery in Oakland, Maine donated all the flowers

Pierce's Nursery in Oakland - what a great place to shop!
