The Washington State Fair has three rose shows and many other kinds of agricultural competitions, plus all the usual crafts, rides and junk foods one expects at a fair. It seems a lot larger than what I was used to seeing at the Minnesota State Fair (where any food on a stick rules) and the Wisconsin State Fair (where cream puffs are the specialty).
Today was my first trip there. My roses were not very good due to a few days of very heavy rain and being gone from home most of the week, but, I wanted to get the lay of the land before next week’s rose show when I will judge. Very few roses were outstanding today, so I will post winning roses next weekend.
