Sniff. Another summer and fair season has come to an end. The Sonoma County Fair is the last of three near us and the biggest of the season. This year was not my best showing. True I am carting home two blue ribbons which, as James reminds me, is more than a lot of the jam making ladies received.
Win or lose. I love the fair -- the contests, the animals, the exhibits, and of course the ribbons.
Sonoma County's Dairy Princess has the honor of awarding the rosette for Supreme Champion Dairy Female in the open (adult) competition. Surely a highlight of her rule.
The supreme champion herself, surveying her domain.
