It’s that sunflower time of the year at Pope Farm Conservancy in Middleton.
Cloudy weather this time.
Some post-peak droopiness to the sunflowers, which adds to their charm.
Lots of people though.
Overflow parking.
We used to have the place to ourselves.
Especially in 2012 when the 100 degree days scorched the fields and there were no sunflowers at all.
But news stories and social media have made this place go viral.
Oh well.
I guess it’s a good thing that people get so excited about sunflowers.
The field makes me feel like I’m in a Monet painting.
