Reflections: Morning Sunflowers 🌻

Reflecting back to our Friday Morning, excursion two weeks ago, brought a smile to my face. Our trip to a Flower Farm in Nokesville, Virginia was wonderful. We arrived around 9:30 at Burnside Flower Farmer. Mr. Sun was hiding behind the clouds, however it was extremely humid, yet still a gorgeous day.
It is definitely a Family Friendly place and a great place for a Photo Shoot. Admission is only $8.00 which includes Pull Wagons for your young children, access to play and Small Petting Zoo, Bouncer, and Picnic Area with Widescreen TV, picking access, a basket for flowers and Flower Clipper. They allow you to borrow lovely umbrella with a Giant Radiant Sunflower on it. You can also purchase your own umbrella, T-Shirts, drinks and snacks.
It was so captivating as we seized the moment, with every part of our being. The Sunflower🌻 Field was Nature’s Art, reminding us a touchable Sun.
There was much anticipation as we excitedly clipped each flower, then removing the leaves, putting them in Compost Bin. Selecting the perfect Vase underneath the covered white tent was fun. The prices varied from $2.99-$5.99 and the Sunflowers🌻 were only $1.50, the Lavender was only $1.00. Watching the Bright Orange faced Sunflower, smiling bright with Yellow petals, a touch Gold glistening softly “take me home.”
We took some wonderful photographs. Each Sunflower🌻 looked as though it was hand painted. A slight wind blew, the fields danced with such dazzling colors, it was elegant canvas.

Beautiful, I adore Sunflowers, this year was the only year I didn’t grow any, as I usually let our granddaughter plant them, but I totally forgot for some reason to get seeds.. I usually dry the seeds from flowers to feed the birds..
You can get so many different varieties now, From Giant ones to smaller ones..
Sounds as if you all had some fun..

Much love sent your way Yonnie.. Enjoy the rest of Summer, Autumn is now chipping in here with cooler wetter and windier weather..
Hugs Sue ❤ 🌻🌻🌻

What made it truly exceptional was the hospitality of love shown toward everyone. The radiant smiles beaming from so many family as we passed and even conversed. The laugher of the children, as the played. I forgot to even mention meeting, Mr. Turkey who is one of the petting animals who lives there and is quite friendly and to hear Mr. Rooster at noon was truly amazing. They have rows of Sunflowers that are up 8 to 12 feet tall. Their is a peaceful and lovely presence there. Thanks so much for your comment.
