This month we gathered at a farmer's field northeast of Lawrence with 40 acres of sunflowers. The locals take this seriously, with several parking lots (fields) and professional photographers, etc. The farm sells at the local farmer's market so they are well known and supported. They have free will stations for contributions, especially if you cut one to take home. It was a sunny clear day and it wasn't unusual for people to say hi and watch you for a couple minutes.
