We are in the middle of summer already — so go out and visit a sunflower farm in Hamilton, Ontario!
Yesterday, after we watched the PanAm Games soccer match for Bronze Medal between Brazil and Panama in Hamilton, we decided to visit the sunflower farm which is only 20 minutes from the stadium by car.
Unfortunately, when we arrived there, a woman told us that a wedding was going on at the farm, so she couldn’t let us in into the parking area. However, she directed us a bit further down the road where there’s a small intersection. She said we could park in there but warned us not to take too long if we were only there to take pictures. And so we did.
This is the sunflower farm.
Or, as my friend calls it, Sunflower Field.
We all know that sunflowers follow the sun, right?
But now, I’m not sure about that anymore.
In our 30-minute stay at this farm, the sunflowers turned their backs away from the sun!
Obviously, in this picture, the sun is behind them.
Can someone explain this to me? 😀
Sunflowers are my favourite flowers.
Even the bees love them.
And the butterflies, too!
Vincent Van Gogh painted them.
He said, “How wonderful yellow is. It stands for the sun.”
If you want to cheer someone up, give her a sunflower. It will surely brighten her day!
Beginning today, be a sunflower to someone’s cloudy day. 😉
And the world is going to be a better place to live in.
