Guess where I was today? Somewhere south of here... fairgrounds... horrible traffic once you get within a mile of your destination? You guessed it! The Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival!
Wearing a fabulous hat, nonetheless!
Would you believe I bought this hat at Home Depot? Just squint your eyes a bit and imagine a mint julep in my hand - I could be at the Kentucky Derby!
This had to be one of the best MDSW that I have been to in a long time. The weather was beautiful - mild, and maybe only in the high 60s for most of the morning. I wore my sports jacket all day - but there was a huge variance in what I saw other people wearing (everything from tank tops to fleece coats).
I saw lots of animals, including mohair goats:
And the teeniest baby bunnies:
The colors were amazing, too.
Even the lack of color was beautiful:
I came home with just four skeins of yarn:
Two minty bars of soap:
And two cherry tomato plants - one is a Black Cherry (a sweet purple cherry tomato) and the other a Sunpeach cherry (a pink-orange non-acidic cherry tomato):
So, even despite the fact that I couldn't have any ice cream or kettle corn because of my temporary caps on my molars, I have to rank this up there as one of the best MDSWs I have ever been to... and I can't wait until next year!
