We were over to the field to check for blooms last evening and spotted the first one for 2020. It won’t be long now with peak bloom likely in 7-10 days.
Please note our signage when visiting:
- Do not enter the field – it is private property and the sunflowers can be viewed equally well from outside the fence
- Sunflowers are easily damaged by “touching” and we are depending on the plants to stay healthy and provide us a good yield of sunflower seed to feed our local birds
- Herbicides are used on the crop, throughout the season to manage weeds, pests, and disease – do not touch the plants
- take as many photos as you like and be sure to catch the sunset, over the field, some evening – promises to be breath taking
Check it out – 20 acres of pure beauty on Blakeney Road, North of Village of Blakeney and South of Panmure Road.
If you love the sunflowers feel free to make a donation, in memory of our daughter, to the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.
You can also pick up a bag of our black oil sunflower seed from Levi Home Hardware in Almonte or at our farm on Martin Street North.
