So I drove to Anderson's Sunflower Farm in Cumming, GA one fine summer morning recently. Have you ever been to a sunflower farm? I hadn't until now and didn't quite know what to expect. There they were, each one a jewel until itself, but together, oh my goodness, sensory overload. Row upon row of undulating gold. Overwhelming! This is what it feels like to run into a solid wall of sunflowers.
This shade of yellow has the official Safety Yellow stamp of approval! Who knew there was such a thing? H-mmmm. A heliotropic conspiracy perhaps?
