Lily Fest 2011 opens this weekend in the Hocking Hills on Friday July 8th and runs through Sunday July 10th.
My daughter and I are making plants to attend Saturday.
It looks like the weather is going to cooperate this weekend to making it a lovely day to attend. Last year my daughter and I got drown when a thunderstorm hit. LOL!
I think this is where I acquired my love of lilies from attending the show in 2008. I was amazed at all of the colors and variations. Masses of lilies are planted throughout the grounds of the Bishop home.
Of course there are more plants besides lilies planted along grassy paths.
I think my favorite spot was the pond and all of the Lotus blossoms.
Garden art and whimsy are scattered in amongst the beds.
The Butterfly House will be there again this year with different displays of the life cycle of Butterflies.
The children and us bid kids too always enjoy that.
Also this year besides the musical groups playing will be a Viking reenactment camp.
There will be about 70 vendors on the grounds.
