Pollyanna Gets Fairly Obscene

Lyda here. This is the third installment of my adventures at the Orange County Fair. If y’all are interested, here’s part one – fair animals and part two – fair fiber. Yes, I went to the fair in August, and it’s now the end of October. Let’s just say this whole post is a diversion from my fall. And I’m not talking about the season.

I only took two pictures of the quilting, both of the same of the award-winning quilt:

This was a beautiful baby quilt. I even took a close up:

I love the colors, the design, and the lavish quilting in golden thread. It was perfectly executed. Something to aspire to.

But I promised obscenity, and I’ll get there, y’all. Heading into the produce section, I saw that the fair has a huge… floral clock.

Time to flower...

Time to flower.

Not as special as the clock in Quirm, but it did keep time. There were plenty of other plants as well. Including some weird vegetables.

Like these mutants:
Yes, that is just one carrot on that plate...

And this terrifying plant:

Now, that will REALLY scare the kids this Halloween.

But this is what y’all are waiting for:
The mind boggles...
