Annual Autumn Garden Fair

Yesterday we were at the autumn garden fair at Marketta park. Only 7 km from where we live. The last spring and autumn fairs have been beautiful sunny days. Yesterday it was raining. I think there was not as many stands and visitors as usually. Well, we arrived there right at the opening hour at 10 am so maybe there was more later during the day. I didn’t take as many photos as I usually do. It was hard with the umbrella in one hand and the camera in the other.

Tiger lilies after the rain

Tiger lilies IMG_6856CTiger lily IMG_6853CNone of us were able to remember when it rained last time. It really has been extremely hot week after week after week. Nothing like summers usually are. This week it has been raining in many parts of the country but, not here. Finally, yesterday it was raining. The short, about 30 minute, thunder & rain gave buckets of water. The nature so needed it. It stopped as quickly as it began and the sun was back and it was as warm again as it has been all summer. I feared the rain would destroy the tiger lilies but they are good πŸ™‚

Daylily Strawberry Candy

Of my four different daylilies this Strawberry Candy is the only one to bloom this year. There is four stems. About 5-7 buds on each. It has been, and still is, so very warm. I have watered the plants every day but despite that I can see the leaves are turning yellow and many buds look very dry. Maybe I have given them too much water. I really hope there will be more of them than just one flower. Thumbs up πŸ™‚
