Maple Leaf Festival

On Saturday my husband and I went with our daughter and her fiance, Scott, to the Maple Leaf Festival in Baldwin City, KS. We got to hear great fiddle music played by these young students. They were fantastic. Secretly, I've always wanted to learn to play the fiddle. I need to put that on my "Bucket List!"
This quaint little town had charming older homes and great brick streets. My husband, the brick salesman, is always amazed that most towns have asphalted over these beauties. We still have two brick streets in our hometown, but they are on the streets less traveled.
This is my daugter, Amber, and her fiance, Scott. We took a neat little train ride where we were held up by train robbers.

Amber and I were overwhelmed by the huge mums that were for sale. She grabbed this one before I could get my hands on it! It almost covers up her beautiful face.

There's my little cutie pie and my other cutie pie is on the right searching for the perfect mum for his hmmfff, perfect wife. Just kidding!
Aren't they beautiful! We decided on a yellow one for the front porch.

We had a lovely day and will definitely return next year. My daughter was scoping out the craft booths to decide if she wants to have her own booth next year. It was extremely well attended and I may just have to get a booth next year too or see if she'll share one with me. I haven't done a craft show in years.


  1. Those mums are absolutely gorgeous, as is your daughter! What a wonderful day you must have had. Thanks so much for sharing the pictures.


  2. Oh! That looks like a wonderful time! You should definitely get a booth next year. I'm sure you'd sell out in no time! What does your daughter sell?

  3. I can't get over how big and beautiful those mums were! What a great day!

  4. Thanks so much for supporting our industry this fall.....check out our mum fields (15 acres) this fall or really big dose of mums :)



Thanks for taking the time to share your sweet comments!
