We went to the India Festival. There is non-stop entertainment at the center stage, and at each side of the stage, there are many booths of food vendors, as well as many stalls that sell clothing, jewelry, artwork, and service vendors offering legal, real estate, and religious services. At one point at the end of our visit, we sat in the back near where the performers were resting. I liked the shot of the performer watching other performers.
At another time, I went to the side of the stage to take photos. These women were spinning very quickly to show off their balancing skills, and even though the photo is blurry, I just loved the smile this performer had throughout the dance.
The obligatory passion fruit flower picture from my garden. This one is too close to the tomatoes, but I don't have the heart to take out either the tomatoes or the passion fruit, as they are both volunteers. This year, we had a lot more plants with white flowers. These bees look different to me from previous years, thicker and more rectangular.
We took a trip to Iowa. The rest of the pictures are from Iowa. That is a really big wine barrel in Amana. Note the barrels in the background too.
This is also Lily Lake. The Mama Goose was watching her teenagers and did not budge from her spot even though her companions told her to watch out for us. These are her kids she was watching.
We saw lots of people fishing.
Beautiful sunset before the Balloon Glow festival.
I enjoyed the sculptures and beautiful artwork throughout our trip.
I am still taking pictures of flowers and butterflies no matter where I go. This is the fossil gorge, which was quite interesting.
