Rewind to last May. Daughter Kerry and her husband hosted the Outstanding In Our Field festival at the farm. It was chilly, drizzly and gray, but folks were overdue for time outside, and time in public without restrictions and masks. Weather did not deter the crowd, and several hundred people attended to listen to the Barn Band, and peruse the booths of many vendors. Daughter Kerry sold flowers from the flower wagon while daughter Miranda manned her own booth in partnership with her mother-in-law Kathy. Kathy is a very skilled seamstress and crafter extraordinaire. Her handmade table runners and place mats are truly works of art. Miranda got herself a new machine that customizes coffee mugs and can cozies, and offered these souvenirs of the event. The fire department brought a truck to show off, and promptly got it stuck in the mud. Luckily there are a number of tractors on the farm, and quick work was made of the vehicle’s retrieval (and what a great story!)

The shoot was a little challenging in the sense the weather was poor and skies gray. It wasn’t difficult to find color though, between the vendors and the flowers. I included a couple shots of the parking area and the mud to convey the weather. Photos do not relate how chilly and breezy it was, but everyone was in great spirits. Breaking out into spring, leaving winter behind, and the first occasion of the year to allow a big social gathering without masks. The Festival was a resounding success, and hopes are high to do it again next year!
Take care and keep in touch.
