Beautiful Monarch from the Butterfly Garden!
It was the 100th Anniversary of the Butter Cow at the Iowa State Fair. There were over 100 decorated cows displayed around the fairgrounds. Of course, this was my favorite because they repurposed junk into something that I wish was for sale. It would look great in my garden!
The Agriculture Building is one of my favorite buildings. I love it when they showcase the floral competitions.
And another cow made of sand!
I would have shown you the various food we grazed on during the several days we were there but that would have only made you hungry. So if you have not made it to the Iowa State Fair I would recommend you make plans to visit in 2012. Now since the Fair season is over it is time to get back to repurposing my finds for the upcoming Fall shows.
