Sunflowers are back, wanna go? That’s all I had to say to Christina to get her to go. Sunflowers are her favorite flowers and I can understand why. They come in all sizes, heights and colors. Once again we made a trip to Eugster’s Farm for their Sunflower Days. It is one of 2 places that I know of in the Madison, WI area to see vast fields of sunflowers. (The other is at Pope Farm, but I refuse to go there. Pope Farm was donated to Middleton, WI with an agreement to keep the location FREE and open to the public. This year the City of Middleton decided to charge a fee to go there, breaking the original agreement when the land was donated. For more information look here Pope Farm Conservancy.)
More Than Sunflowers
It was a great day weather wise. That’s right, it was hot and humid, just the way I like it. There was more to see there than just sunflowers though. Eugster’s Farm has a fresh produce market and a petting zoo. Chris and I found some new friends at the petting zoo, which isn’t a surprise, since she finds friends wherever she goes. But here it was a bunch of kittens, instead of humans. We also found a few flying friends, although they weren’t airborne at the time. They can all be found in the Animals Gallery.
It was a great morning. It actually started out at the Dane County Farmer’s Market, where we each bought plenty of fresh produce and of course cheese curds. The trip to Eugster’s Farm was pretty awesome too. We got there early so there were very few people. Chris helped a few people get pictures so they could remember their time there also. Oh, yeah we both did take some photos of sunflowers too. Mine can be found in the Flowers Gallery and Christina’s in her gallery here.
