We celebrated the Fourth of July by going for a hike at Reservoir Ridge Natural Area. These wild sunflowers made me smile as we climbed the long uphill trail.
We visited the sunflower maze at Dakeyne Farm last weekend. As it was rather late in the sunflower season by the time we got to visit the maze, you can see that many of the flowers were beginning to hang their heavy heads (you can’t fully appreciate just how heavy a sunflower head is until you’ve been whacked by them over and over as you push through a maze of them!). Even so, it was beautiful, and we enjoyed learning some sunflower trivia as we found our way through the maze.
