I have a few traditions every year that I never get tired of, and this is one of them. Visiting the sunflower field at McKee Beshers, they are here!!
If you have never been and you are in Maryland, you are really missing out. Even if you are not in Maryland it is worth the drive. There are 25 acres of sunflowers to see and it is quite spectacular. Every time I go, the view blows me away every time. I got quite a few new prints for my sunflower kitchen :)
Here are some of my favorites taken yesterday, besides the one above!
Here is the view! We decided at the last minute to go and we barely had enough time to get the ladder and catch the beautiful sunset! Look at this view :)
I call this one, a sunflower and his friends :P
Some flowers are still opening, like the one above..
This one isn't ready.
My husband is always taking snapping his cell phone at me when I am not ready. He does it to annoy me, this I am sure of. Like most people, I don't really like my picture taken, I like being the one behind the camera, but do wish I had more with myself and my family. My husband was holding the camera and I turned around and this is what happened. Thank goodness for photoshop cream, since it is the middle of summer and I am photographing in the middle of a sunflower field and dressed for the occasion, but I am really happy that my husband was the one who captured me doing one of my favorite things!
Sunflower portrait minis will most likely happen next year after my move into our house.
Sunflowers only bloom for two weeks and we are in week one, so don't miss this chance to see all these beautiful flowers! For more information and directions visit the Department of Nature Resources website here.
