Although it may be uncomfortable for some, hot and humid summer weather is bringing heat-loving flowers, such as this poppy, into full bloom, filling flower gardens with brilliant color. While this flower may be offering up its beauty a bit early for the county fair, the favorable growing weather means it’s time for gardeners to start giving special attention to prospective fruit, flower and vegetables entries for the 81st annual fair, which will be held Sept. 12-16 in Holbrook. Fair books are available now at the fairgrounds for early planning.
