Today is the start of Derby week! This morning, the Balloon Race (delayed due to wind) and the Mini Marathon kicks off a week of fun activities. I have always loved Derby week. The city is full of energy this week! Everyone manicures their yard and plants their flowers, decorating with Derby wreaths, flags and such. A few years ago, I made this yard stake of a jockey silk. Stephen cut a piece of wood (in the silk shape) with an electric saw and I painted it. It was an easy afternoon project. Enjoy the week of festivities!
