Things started to get Prickly as we went by the cactus display:

So we stopped by Annie’s Cheese Cake (vendor at the Fest) for a sandwich & soda and sat under the tree house.

As you probably know by now I am always thinking about golf. So imagine my surprise when I found the wooden putter.

While I was checking out the putter guess what Linda found?  (BEARS)

That looks like so much fun! I love going to festivals and seeing all the handmade items for sale. I like the setting of the Lilyfest, out among the trees. Thank you for sharing the pictures and your trip, I enjoyed them!

A lilyfest! Oh I would've loved it. There's a botanical garden I used to go to annually to see all the lilies. Foolproof and they multiply all on their own! My kind of plants!

I would've had a hard time getting by the pottery, too, although I bet they were pricey. I'm always on the hunt for BIG pots for outdoors.... tough to find!

Y'know...I can imagine myself living in that treehouse! So long as there was enough room for books!

I love this type of entertainment, especially dulcimers. We have a local lady that is amazing with her hammer dulcimer...
