Now in Bloom: Sunflower Patch at Arbor Day Farm
Reason #32 to come to Arbor Day Farm in early- to mid-August: the one acre sunflower patch is in glorious full bloom.
Granted, there’s no shortage of beautiful landscapes and interesting things to photograph across these 260 acres in any season. But this sunny patch along the Discovery Ride path is simply magnificent.
The sunflowers are new this year, courtesy of Arbor Day Farm’s landscaping department. Visitors who climb aboard the Discovery Ride — the guided tram-like ride that winds over the river and through the woods — journey right through the middle of the patch, where they can snap their own photos of these symbols of summer.
You can view a few more photos of Arbor Day Farm’s sunflower patch here, but you really owe it to yourself to come see it in person. Don’t forget your camera!
