A new nature preserve opened near where we live a few days ago called the Thomas Township Nature Center and Preserve, so of course we had to go check it out. One thing we definitely weren't expecting was a massive field of sunflowers right in the middle of the place!
The sunflowers are at their peak and we aren't sure how much longer they'll be fully in bloom - some are starting to go to seed already! - so that prompted me to hurry up and get back there in an appropriate outfit to do a little photo shoot. We put together a picnic, grabbed a tripod, and headed out on a little adventure. The light wasn't the most ideal with the direction of the sun versus where the flowers were facing (morning would be better), and the weather was definitely a little too warm for a sweater dress, but I got a few shots that I really love!
I hope they plant sunflowers here again next year, so I can get to them earlier and more often for lots of future photo shoots!
