A huge enchanting sunflower field!


After we left the New Perry Hotel, we continued northward to find this Sunflower field in Rutledge, Georgia! They had had a festival there on the 4th and 5th, and we arrived a day late and a dollar in hand! The owner was just leaving, but there were a couple of other folks in the garden cutting sunflowers to take (honors system), and they were also from Florida!

Behind this fence you can see the closer sunflowers, but the field extended out all the way to the tall trees at back edge!!! It was amazing to see! He also had a beautiful cutting garden, a vegetable garden, and a little garden for wee folk, which I could not take any more pics due to battery death...no way! Sad but true!!! I will have happy memories of this place forever. I had seen about it on the internet the night before, and it had been written up in Southern Living Magazine as a festival to attend!!!

Tonight we are in Atlanta, ready to visit Stone Mountain in the morning! Will update as soon as I can (after my long nap tomorrow)!!!

Sunflower fields always seem deliciously sinful to me...they're sort of like drop dead gorgeous weeds. How can such an amazing flower grow on such an ugly plant?!

We have family in Ga, so we visit several times a year. I love Jekyll Island. A few years ago, we passed a massive crop of Sunflowers. It was amazing! I was not into photography then, so NO pix (:
