As part of Connect Your Summer, the Game On and Green Thumb badges have teamed up to do a flower tournament! Only one flower can be crowned the best flower of summer, and it's up to you to decide.
Each week during Connect Your Summer, two flowers will duke it out for your votes. The flower with the most votes will continue on in the tournament. Last week, carnations wilted to roses. This week, sunflowers and daisies go leaf to leaf!
Sign in to vote for your favorite flower:

Little blog on the prairie by Cathleen Davitt Bell
Gen Welsh and her family are spending the summer in Wyoming at a frontier camp. The camp requires participants to live like it's the 1880s - clothing, outhouses, growing your own crops, milking cows, the whole bit. Knowing the summer will be miserable, Gen sneaks in a forbidden cell phone and uses it to text her friends back home. When Gen's friends use her texts to create a blog chronicling her experience, it goes viral, causing everything to slowly unravel.
