The Oktoberfest at the Schifferstadt usually draws a large crowd and today's gorgous weather made it perfect for wandering around the grounds and seeing the people, crafts, music, and food. After Oktoberfest I happened upon the tail end of the Rose Hill Carriage Society's annual carriage drive which went right up Market Street.

Coleus is one of those plants that can be just a little splash of color or pattern in a garden, or can be grown to create an enormous design feature. I took some photos of Coleus growing in a window box and in a planter a few weeks ago in Downtown Frederick and these examples show how mighty the coleus can be. The final few were taken a few years ago and show the green thumbs of local sidewalk gardeners. Click on a photo for a larger view.
