I wasn’t kidding when I previously wrote that May Day heralds the start of balmy summer weather. With temperatures climbing up into the eighties, I apologize that I wasn’t able to maintain the stamina to walk every side street and take photos of all the winners, but at least I can share pictures of some of them so that if you were not able to take a downtown walk you can see some of the winning May Baskets displayed in the Annapolis Historic District. Other than one of the baskets downtown (the simple one on the pottery bowl) and the one slightly wilted with a pink ribbon (a child’s basket) all the rest shown are blue ribbon winners.
Unfortunately many of the flowers were starting to wilt, so if you can get downtown today or tomorrow, this may be your last opporunity.
I was pleased to see some old favorites along with some new faces at the FarmFresh Farmer’s Market this morning. Now you can buy fresh milk and yogurt there and I hear the same vendor(Nice Farms Creamery from Federaldsburg) will also be selling this afternoon at the Westfield Mall Farmer’s Market. Folks were setting up for the First Sunday Festival– lots of vendors and lots of activity. If you decide to stay home in the shade today and want to go out Tueday evening, Washington Symphonic Brass is giving a concert at St. Anne’s Episcopal Church at 7:30 p.m. For ticket information call 410-280-5640.
