Sunflowers for Wishes

I would like to tell you about a wonderful opportunity in CT for all of you! July 17 through July 25 there is a wonderful farm that grows sunflowers. Not just a bunch or two, but thousands and you can purchase a bunch for $5 to support the Make-a-Wish foundation! They also have sunflower flavored ice cream. The farm is named Buttonwood Farm and it is located in Griswold, CT. 473 Shetucket Turnpike, Route 165, Griswold to be correct! They have been doing this for a number of years and it is one of the most spectacular things I have ever seen…..sunflowers as far as you can look! You can take a wagon ride through them. For more information on the times they are open you may call their phone number 860-376-4081 or visit their website: www.sunflowers

Don’t miss the opportunity to see this and experience another farm in CT trying to give back to the community and the larger community.

What a great thing to do! There is nothing much more prettier than a field full of sunflowers!

Someone wiped out the sunflowers in our garden this year.....thought they were weeds. Oh year.
