One year, all of the kids in my daughter’s class were given a sunflower seed and paper cup with dirt. In theory, if they planted it at home, about the time it would bloom, it was time to go back to school. Our sunflower didn’t make it past the first week of splash pads and pool parties, but the sunflowers at Tuttle Orchards indicate that it is indeed, back to school time. Check out their Sunflower Maze before they stop blooming!
A half acre of sunflowers have sprung from the ground at Tuttle Orchards. Summer weather has made it so that this year it’s a trail instead of a maze. Paths throughout the blooming garden will take you on a whimsical adventure through knee high and waist high golden flowers.
And the photos. Oh, the photos! Don’t forget your cameras.
You’ll also want to bring bug repellent of some sort since it’s been such a wet summer. I love that mother nature decides how the sunflower trail will look each year. The first year that I visited, they were high above my head. This year they are about the size of my baby.
The flowers are in full bloom so it won’t be much longer! Don’t wait, visit today.
