Pure Michigan Sunflowers as Far as the Eye Can See

UPDATE: The sunflower field below is not in bloom in 2019. Checkout my newest post from August 2019 about another sunflower field option in the area, Schell Family Farm in Pinckney, Back to Capture More Pure Michigan Sunflowers ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป

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? ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚
