It's sunflower season, time to plan some trips to your local fields and farms.

Sunflowers are one of life's greatest gifts. They are truly spectacular flowers. I LOVE seeing a full grown sunflower.

 

Sunflower fields are a whole other level of magic. From photoshoot opportunities, to being able to pick your own flowers, there's plenty of sunflower field fun to be had this summer.

Did you know that sunflowers can be colorful? You probably picture the iconic yellow in your head when you think of sunflowers. But they actually have a beautiful range of color they bloom in.

How stunning are those? And the best part is M & D farms in Homer Glen, IL. let's you pick your very own colorful sunflowers.

Seriously some of the coolest sunflowers I've ever seen. Visiting sunflower fields in the summer is a blast. But I love that this place allows you to pick your own. You have to pay $3 per sunflower. And you get to take all of your flowers home with you of course.

I've also seen a ton of pictures on Instagram of dogs at the farm, and honestly the photos are SO adorable. So if you're dog is down for a little trip to the farm and some sunflower photo shoots, you should totally take your furry friend with.

Homer Glen is just over an hour from Rockford and you can learn more about their farm and gardens on their website.

Happy sunflower field season!
