Pope Farm Conservancy
2019 UPDATE: The sunflowers are back! The Town of Middleton Sunflower Days are July 26th – August 4th, 2019. Learn more here.
Turns out, Pope Farm Conservancy hosts an annual event where the public can come and witness a nine-acre sunflower field in full bloom. Apparently sunflower season is insanely short so Sean and I made plans right away so we wouldn’t miss it.
We made our way around the field; the air was calm and had that early morning summer warmth to it. Only a few other people were milling about so it was pleasantly quiet, just the occasional bird singing nearby. Suddenly the clouds broke and the sunlight streamed through, casting golden light over the sunflowers. Within minutes it disappeared, hiding behind the clouds again, but I was delighted. I had got the shots I wanted!
