Pure Michigan Sunflowers as Far as the Eye Can See

We are on the backside of the summer season here in Michigan and the Midwest. That meant when I was out on the open road this week, I came across a field of Pure Michigan sunflowers as far as the eye can see.

I got as close to the never-ending field in Whitmore Lake, just outside Ann Arbor, as I could without going in. The early morning light just beamed off the sunflowers that were as tall as me. All of the bright blue sky served as the perfect backdrop. Dawn is my recommended time to experience sunflowers.

With sunflowers usually come some bees, but I was lucky enough only to see a few. Can you spot the one below? 🙂

You will find this field on the northwest corner of North Territorial and Whitmore Lake roads. I parked alongside Whitmore Lake road watching the morning dew soak my jeans and shoes. It was well worth it to see the summertime beauty that is sunflowers. I will let the rest of the pictures do the talking.

From my experience sunflowers don’t seem to stay in full bloom for very long. I was so happy that I drove through this intersection this week. 🙂

Where else would you recommend checking out sunflowers in Michigan? Where have you come across them in your travels?

      Thank you! Yeah heard about that from others. 😦 I was fearful of that so never actually went into the field. Photos were from in-between the road and the field. Luckily found some good spots/angles. Will have to check out your sunflower shots. 🙂

  3. This is amazing. I will try and check this out next year!

      It was quite the scene here. There is another sunflower spot that is suppose to be outstanding in Saline, Michigan but haven’t had a chance to get too. Couldn’t how vast this spot was.The sunflowers were up here for maybe 2 weeks. Hope you can Ted, cheers! 🙂
