The hydranga in my front yard looks lovely.  It is from a Virginia grower; he was showing them at the Hahn horticulture garden about four years ago.  This is the first year it has bloomed and the blossoms are worth the wait.

The sign is a bit beat-up; it is on the crest of a hill; the water tank behind it.

Today, the workers at the Promenade on College Ave. were working.  There was no big machinery as has been visible...just manual labor

Saturday at Steppin' Out

Music is my favorite part of Steppin' Out.  The Community Band and the Pan Jammers played today.

Scenes from Steppin' Out, the Blacksburg Fair that marks the end of the quiet summer and looks forward to festive fall.

Weather is normal and Blacksburg has four delightful seasons.  This morning it began to look like the fall mornings.
