Since last we had Tea, I was super busy getting the Playhouse loaded and all the BBQ stuff gathered to make it to Lancaster, CA for an other competition over the weekend. More will be posted about that later this week. But I did grab my camera on one trip into Bakersfield, so I thought I'd share some of my stomping grounds with you, and what some of the things this area is known for. So grab a cuppa and stroll along with me. (Actually I drove LOL)
This place is about a 1/2 mile from my house and is quite well know for supplying living caterpillars, butterflies and insects to anywhere in the world. There is even a bug-museum inside. It is a well visited place for school field trips, and is really fun on the inside. I took my oldest GD (when she was the only GD we had) and we really enjoyed it. About 12 years ago the painted the building and added LARGE wooded bugs to the outside.
This area is mainly agricultural, so what do we grow here?
Pistachios...MMMMMMM. They are about the last thing harvested. These trees still have nuts on them, they are those brown looking clusters hanging down.
So that is what is right around here (Shafter) Tomorrow I'll take you into Bakersfield.
