A few weeks ago Sug and I traveled to The Sunflower Garden to see their flowers. It was still a little early in the season.
This past weekend we were on the road again to visit McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area. It’s always open, very low key, and free. There’s a haphazard parking area where there were at least 2 dozen vehicles parked.
We walked up a make-shift road toward the direction other people were going when we finally came across an announcement board with a sign pointing to the sunflower fields.
We were also cautioned to be on the lookout for poachers.
We walked past a swampy marsh bordered with large white hibiscus.
We finally arrived at the sunflower fields — thirty acres of sunflowers.
They’re grown to attract mourning doves which will eventually be hunted by bird hunters.
The fields were very popular with couples, families, photographers, etc.
The sunflowers at the McKee-Beshers WMA are definitely worth the ride from the Baltimore-Washington area. It might even be better at sunrise or sunset.
What’s a favorite outing in your neighborhood?
