For my readers in the DC area you still have time to see these beauties at the Mckee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area in Poolesville, Maryland. Just up the path (about a mile past the field of dead sunflowers) there's still a field blooming sunflowers. Aren't they amazing? Even though we went on what felt like the hottest afternoon this summer, it was well worth the sweat and sunburn.
Special thanks to my talented friend Jonathon Weller for these amazing photos and for remembering to set a calendar reminder to see the flowers a year after we missed them last July!
