Visiting a sunflower field and getting our photos is a yearly tradition. It’s one of my favorite ways to enjoy nature’s beauty toward summer’s golden end. This year, it’s also a fun summer/fall family activity you can incorporate while social distancing!
If you missed the fields in July-August, don’t worry; there are still more to come in September and October. So go ahead, load up the car, grab your camera, and go get lost in a sea of flowers!
