Calling all sunflower lovers! The Lyndon Leaders 4-H Club’s sunflower field is progressing faster than we thought. We think the flowers will be in full bloom by the second weekend in August.

As with the club’s sunflower project last year, everyone is invited to stop by the field and look at the sunflowers in bloom. To reach the field, from the junction of U.S. 56 and U.S. 75 (Four Corners), go four miles south on U.S. 75 to 189th Street; the field is northwest of the intersection. The sunflowers will be easily visible from U.S. 75, but do not park on the highway. Please pull off on the gravel road, 189th Street, and enjoy.

The club decided that all donations from the sunflower field will go to Garrett McCoy, a Lyndon high school senior who recently suffered from a brain aneurism. Club members thank all who support Garrett and the 4-H club.

    The sunflowers are magnificent. It is reminiscent of Grinter Sunflower field outside Lawrence, minus the huge throngs of people. There are mown trails through the sunflowers. Fantastic setting for senior pictures, engagement photos, etc. Please be respectful so all can enjoy. Leave a donation to show your appreciation and thank you Doug Shoop for making this available.
