Berry Glad I Stopped

I was the one curious to see what the oversized berries were up to, delighted to find a new (and slightly absurd) farmer's market. 
Lauraville Farmers Mkt, MD

Giant berries, always worth a stop!

Ostentatious Oddballs

One of the great things about Baltimore is it is proud to be kooky. 
Festival kick off weekend always includes the kinetic sculpture race, which also happened to be last weekend, so clearly didn't get any attention when my bleeting heart was entwined with wool
Rock 'em Sock 'em, Baltimore, Rock 'em Sock 'em!

The American Visionary Art Museum, along with various businesses, schools, and science centers, sponsor this spectacle that is uniquely B'More.   A couple of the sculptures have survived for years and reside in the AVAM's barn.

You stay quirky, Baltimore.

Shear Excellence

And it goes a little something like this...
Me: This is the Sheep Festival weekend. 
Sister: That should be combleetly wonderful!
Me: I see what u did there.  It was truly baaaad.
Sister: I thought I pulled the wool over your eyes, but you caught my baaaad joke.
Me: Ewe have always been my biggest shearleader
Sister: For the win!
Me: Don't  herd me by calling it quits, we've not even 1/4 way through all the puns we could think of... we've not even touched alpacas or llamas or....  

This past weekend was our annual Festival Season kick off!   
Warm fuzzies, willing to pose,  at the Sheep and Wool Festival.
 Right now, you might be thinking, "Who really gives a flock, Karen?"
But truth be told, wooly mammoths are my not-so-secret obsession.  Every year we've gone to this festival as our summery starter,  and every year we've learned more about my part.
 I'd seriously take the cool, country calm over the bustling, cut-throat  ways of Wool Street any day. 
I wanted to share a sweet pun about the cute little model above, but I can't seem to think of anything right off the hoof. I think I'm going to have chew the cud on that one for awhile.  
But, even if I can think of one,  I swear I won't ram too many more puns down your throat.
All baaaad puns aside, I always love this weekend.
