Flower enthusiasts of all ages attended the Butler County Fair, in Ohio, where they displayed their arrangements in a fun-filled competition.

For the first time this year the competition featured a a junior division, and kids as young as 10 put their flowers on display. Kaitlyn Smith, one of the younger competitors, took home the Best in Show ribbon for her display of yellow day lilies, according to the Oxford Press.

"I think it's really fun to do," the youngster told the news source. "You get to watch them grow and learn all their names." Smith solicited help from friends and family to gather the materials needed for her display, which also included cattails and iris foliage.

In the adult division, 64-year-old Bette Jungeberg won first place for her basket arrangement. This was the second time the senior took home the prestigious prize.

Some of the arrangements incorporated unique elements, such as moss, driftwood, river weeds and other plants that grow in the wild.

Wildflowers can add a fun flare to any gift bouquet. Blue flax, black-eyed Susans, morning glories and Queen Anne's lace are all flowers that one could consider when putting together a flower arrangement, according to WildFlowerInformation.org.
