Flower Market.

Art by Larry Anderson

The Wilmington Flower Market is this weekend. The event was founded in the 1920s by Mrs. Felix duPont and has been held down the street from me at Rockford Park since 1952.

It is a fundraiser for a variety of children's organizations in Delaware and has raised $4 million since its inception. A local artist is chosen every year to do the artwork for the poster.

I will head over to pick up some plants; there's also a carnival and arts and crafts sale, as well as entertainment. We call it the Mud Market because it inevitably rains every year and it has been raining here for 9 days straight. There seems to be a break today and the sun is out, so if you're in the area, get out while you can.
