Buttonwood Farm Sunflowers...(And ice cream)

Before this weekend we decided to take a trip to the Sunflower field in Connecticut planted by Buttonwood Farm. They have an event where they pick some of the flowers in bunches and sell them for $5 and the proceeds go to charity.


Every sunflower had creatures in it. They were about 7 feet tall and all facing different directions. I wasn't sure if we would miss out going after noon because I thought they all faced toward the sun, but it turns out they all have separate personalities and pretty much face wherever they want...


I don't have many photos of the ice cream because.....we ate it in about 5 seconds. But I would totally recommend the "graham cracker" flavor if you ever visit...

Even thought this is probably the last week for the sunflowers,  this place is really cute and the ice cream is to die for. And in the autumn they have pick your own pumpkins and hayrides.
I'm always looking for fun little field trips like this in New England, if you have any to share or recommend I would love to know... have a great week! :)

Delightful! Ice cream and sunflowers, you can't beat that combination, especially if you're a photographer.

The upside down bee shot is definitely my favorite!
