bicycles in RAIN and a daylily garden in the rain

We spent the past weekend in Indiana, where DH completed his best time for RAIN (Ride Across INdiana). The bicycle ride is 160 miles in one day, from Terre Haute to Richmond. DH finished in 9 hours and 46 minutes. The weather was perfection with a high around 70* and a nice tail wind that helped keep everyone going. Practically unheard of temps for the middle of July in this part of the country.

DH took a few pictures at the beginning of the ride and at rest stops along the way. It was his eighth year participating in RAIN.

My BIL John rode RAIN for the first time this year and finished with a great time, as well. He finished at 11 hours and 41 minutes.

Done!! Yeah!!

DH finishes RAIN

On Sunday, DH and I drove to Hillsdale, Indiana, where we visited Windy Ridge Farm and Daylily Garden.

Windy Ridge Farm and Daylily Garden

More than 600 different kinds of daylilies. Heavenly! 🙂 While we were there, it poured rain, with a cold north wind. Bridget, the owner, had been digging our order, but she sat under the pavilion with us while it rained and we had a great chat. It’s always nice to talk to someone else who shares our love of and interest in daylilies. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit in spite of the cold rain. And we brought ten or so new daylilies home. 🙂
