Sunflower Sunday afternoon

As I woke up in the morning, I decided to have a sunflower Sunday afternoon. It turned out more sunflower-y than even I expected… :)

There’s a local organic farm nearby, where they grow acres and acres of sunflowers. In fact, they grow so many, that they create a sunflower maze in spring, open to public on weekends.

Several months passed since my last visit at the farm and when I got there today, the place was packed and completely changed. It obviously became a popular place for the families to bring their children to introduce them to some farm-life fun activities like Corn Maze, Hay Maze, Goat Walk, Animals, Hayrides, Hay Play area, Tree house, Crafts, Pumpkin Patch and more.

I wasn’t really interested in any of above while I found out that all the produce was sold out and the sunflowers were not for sale in fall, only in spring. Walking around I managed to take some nice pictures of sunflowers, growing along the corn field. And that made me happy.

Twenty minutes later I walked into a grocery store and the first thing I noticed were sunflower bouquets on sale. I treated myself to one and made a pretty vase at home, by adding some Mexican petunias.

Pretty flowers make me smile and sunflowers always seemed the most cheerful to me. I wish every one had more sun flowers in their life!
