Sunflowers are one of the last types to bloom and definitely are a herald of summer’s last days. Cooler weather and early sunsets are on their way!
Colby Farm in Newbury, MA has been using these beautiful flowers to make a carpet of yellow every fall for the last 12 years. People travel from all over New England and even the Northeast to catch a glimpse of them! Luckily, this year we had a good amount of rain and pleasant temperatures and the sunflowers are in bloom!
If you want to visit, get there in the next few days! The flowers last about 10-12 days on the stalks and it has already been 5 days of bloom so far. While there, you can stop by their farmstand to get fruits, veggies, flowers, meals, and more.
There is a ton of traffic getting in and out of the parking area. Be aware that there may be a $5 fee for parking. We parked on the street and walked down. Just be careful if you do this.
