What is the Yellow Daisy Festival?

 The Yellow Daisy Festival is held each year in the month of September in Stone Mountain Park, Georgia  to celebrate the blooming of the daisy as this spectacular species grows in bright rivers of yellow on the granite outcroppings of Stone Mountain. The daisy can be seen in its’ natural environment on hiking trails on the backside of the mountain.”

Here’s some things I saw during my short  “One Hour Tour“…

The Pink Van:  It’s too early to eat Yum Yum Cupcakes. Guess I’ll just keep walking.

The Stone Mill Grinder’s display: Stopped and sampled a tiny cornmeal pancake.

Large Size Fruit Paintings:  What a statement they seem to make.

Interesting sculptures from found pieces…

 

Irish Blessing:

May your home always be too small to hold all your friends
