Summer has arrived at AGHC

Whew!  We’ve made it through another fun-filled American Gothic Days weekend!  We had a wonderful turnout for all three of our events:  American Gothic Art Contest, 5K Run/Walk, and Bike Ride. 
You can see pictures from our events on our Facebook page by clicking here:
After you go to our page simply click on photos and you will see albums for each event.

Yesterday marked the beginning of summer, but it feels like summer has been here for a couple of months already!  The poor wildflowers have been very confused by the early spring and summer.  If you stop by you’ll see many of our late summer and fall flowers are already blooming!  Our balloon flowers (my personal favorite) began to bloom this week, a month or so ahead of schedule!  The picture on the left shows one of our balloon flowers.  I love how they look just like a hot air balloon right before they bloom!

If you are planning on visiting this weekend, please note the Pitchfork Pie Stand will be closed this weekend, June 23/24, as Beth will be at the American Library Association conference in California. But she will be open every weekend after that until Labor Day. Check her web page for updates:
