Tips for Visiting a Sunflower Field
Consider these tips to make your sunflower experience a shining success!
- Bring a container with water for any sunflowers you pick. Picking sunflowers is half the fun! Bring a bucket so you can keep your fresh-cut sunflowers alive on the way home.
- Take pruning shears or flower snippers if you have them. When we went to a sunflower experience a few years ago, the longest wait was the line for the sunflower cutting tools.
- Bring plenty of water to drink. Sunflower season usually coincides with the hottest part of the summer in many areas. Keep everyone in your group hydrated and healthy.
- Check for Covid-19 scheduling, ticket preorders, and mask policies. Also be aware of social distancing for a safe visit for everyone involved.
- Back up your photos and clear some memory. I always need to do this before something important where we want to take a lot of photos. I take so many photos all along that it makes good sense to get into a habit of backing up photos once per month if possible.
- Charge your phone. Running out of battery is pretty much as bad as running out of space on your phone. Make sure it’s charged and ready to go!
- Bring your camera. Even if you prefer the convenience of cell phone photos and selfies in a sunflower field, you may also love to have the creative control you gain with a DSLR.
Final Thoughts: Visiting a Sunflower Field
Most sunflower fields tend to be in full bloom between July and August, depending on the location. Some may go as late as September with prolific blooms you can cut or use as a gorgeous photo backdrop.
Mark your calendar to snap some incredible sunflower field photos this summer!
