Last year Chris and Jean with their daughter, Cheryl and granddaughter Jessica visited Buttonwood Farm in Griswold, CT. Each year Buttonwood Farm does an event called “Sunflowers for Wishes”. This farm plants 400,000 sunflowers that become bouquets for sale to support the “Make A Wish Foundation”. The bouquets are $5.00 and all monies go to make wishes come true for CT children with life-threatening medical conditions. The event dates are July 18th through July 26th from 10 a.m. until dusk. Hayrides for $5 are also available. Don’t miss having some sunflower ice cream and waffle cones. Buttonwood Farm is located at 473 Shetucket Turnpike, (Rtes 201 & 165) in Griswold, CT. The fields of sunflowers are breathtaking. Bring a camera. Don’t miss this event!
