Visiting the Sunflower Farm

At the last minute yesterday we decided to take off for a mini field trip to the local sunflower farm.  For one week each summer this farm holds hay rides, sells sunflowers, makes sunflower ice cream (as well as tons of other homemade ice cream!), and has a very festive feel to it.



There are literally fields and fields of sunflowers.










We walked through the fields, stopped to see the cows and even found a few trampled stalks to inspect.  Evan thought it looked so neat inside! 




I was even inspired to take a selfie and though I hate having my picture taken at all I am trying to get better about consciously taking pictures...

  5. How fun! We have a bit of a sunflower army going on here this year from the chickens "planting" them for us. ;) I would love to grow a big field of them! #fabfridaypost

    1. OH I just LOVE tulips! I had them as my bridal bouquet; I'd love to see a whole farm of them. There is something so happy about visiting any type of flower farm isn't there?

    1. Glad I could help you get to "see" them. They bloomed a bit late in our area this year because of all the rain.

  13. Wow! What's sunflower ice cream like? Thanks for linking up with us #FabFridayPost

    1. I feel bad admitting that I have never been brave enough to try it! It's a vanilla based ice cream with sunflower seeds, honey, and nuts. It sounds good but they have SO many wonderful homemade flavors to choose from that I usually end up with something else.
