The sunflower – such a beautiful thing from Mother Nature. When you view a field of them, it is simply magical to see a sea of yellow. This summer be sure to grab your camera and head to a local field to capture their wonderfulness.
Sunflower fun facts: Each sunflower can contain anywhere from 1000 to 2000 seeds. Sunflowers turn with the sun when in the budding stage. And, the tallest sunflower on record was 30-feet tall!
