We stopped at the Green Barn Sunflower Fields on the way to my FastCAT trials on Sunday. On Saturday we saw all the sunflowers fro the road, but the weather wasn’t very nice. Instead we decided to go early Sunday to beat the crowds and have better weather. These flowers are big, and so very beautiful!
They have an amazing set up for touring the fields. Since we took a lot of photos, we decided to post more of the flowers to day, and on Friday we will post more photos of us with their props and flowers. In Germany, Mom lived near lots of sunflower fields and found it to be normal. Here they are harder to find and more special.
These people are smart as they have a huge circle path with lines through it dividing it into five different areas. Each area blooms at a different time. Areas one and two are pretty much done at this point, three is the best area now, four is starting to bloom, and five is still not showing any real yellow flowers yet. They have signs all around explaining more about these amazing flowers. Did you know this about which direction they face?
Flowers in section four are starting to show some yellow now.
Mom climbed up on the viewing stand to take a photo of part of section three. Look at all these gorgeous, bright sunflowers!
All the flowers keep the pollinators busy. Bees abound in the rows of sunflowers.
The section that is in full bloom has all the props. They moved them from one section to the next as the stage of the flowers changes. Here they have some bright colored bikes which are kind of fun to find.
Mom was a bit nervous dropping Nelson’s leash for photos in the sunflower fields. He could take off and it would be nearly impossible to find him, but he was a very good boy and never tried to make a break for it! If you have a dog friendly place with sunflowers in your area, we suggest you take your pup and go visit. We had a lot of fun, and Friday you will see more of us and all the cool things we found to pose with/on.
