Sound the trumpet

This past weekend we went to the Hoggetown Medieval Faire in Gainesville Florida. I adore the grand display of garb not only by performers but also faire goers! I also take great delight in the MUSIC! My son bought a didgeridoo, a wind instrument of the Aborigines of northern Australia. It is sometimes described as a natural wooden trumpet , which he plays. There were handcrafted instruments in numerous tents and a band, pipes, drums and all that had played at the Scottish Fest performed here too! One of the the highlights of the journey for me was capturing some more farm footage as we drove through rural Florida. I am so excited to continue with my farms series. Meet "Blue"!

Now that you say that it does look like a cloud too. I love this piece - it strikes me as having a spiritual significance
