I saw some pictures recently of the McKee Beshers sunflower fields off River Road in Potomac, and so late Saturday afternoon I dragged Walt out there to take a look. It was a perfect day for picture taking, as it was cloudy and a little off and on drizzle. It took us awhile to find the sunflowers, as access is off of an unmarked dirt road and then you have to walk down a gravel path to a clearing where there are sunflower fields on either side.
There's nothing like a whole field of sunflowers--so much sunshine, even when there's no sun. Apparently the fields are planted with sunflowers to attract doves, as this becomes a hunting area in the fall. But for now it sure is a pretty place to walk.
