Sunflowers end Sunday, don’t miss the joy-filled field.

Last Chance -> A field of living joy all planted for YOU. Watch above for real footage as we clip the deadheads off the sunflower plants – they almost magically perk up and keep blooming!

Hey gang,

It’s a simple message today.

My kids are going back to college; back to high school next week.

The seasons are changing as peaches, nectarines and summer apples come to a close over the next two weeks.

You never know what next week will bring, so you have to grab life’s little moments as they come.

The sunflower field is in dazzling beauty right now, but by next Tuesday, it will be bloomed out, never to be seen again. Even next year’s field will be different.

Sometimes we must grieve that loss, that passing of time, of seasons.

Fall arrives shortly with cooler weather and changes with winter close thereafter.

Sure, it might be a little warm outside, but the sunshine must be enjoyed now – in the fresh, country air.

Wandering the fields with your family, friends, special someone – that must be done now.

Escape to the farm. Put one more delicious, outdoor getaway between you and the end of summer. Join us in a field full of flowers, of beauty, of smile-inducing joy.

See you in the sunflowers,

Farmer Hugh
