I entered my sunflower photo in the Open Division for photography at Shawnee Co. Fair in the Nature category. Went over at lunch and found a pretty blue ribbon hanging on it 🙂  I know, county fair isn’t really much “serious” competition, but it’s still fun to add a ribbon to my growing collection, especially when they’re blue!Angela's-Sunflower-II
