It's that time of the year again —And no, we're not talking about back-to-school season. We're talking about sunflower season. The flower is beginning to turn the state yellow as its beautiful blooms stretch toward the sky.
Sunflowers are known for their large blooms that turn to face the sun throughout the day. Due to the fact sunflowers are faithfully dedicated to the sun, various faiths have adopted sunflowers to express a symbol of worship or faithfulness.They also come in many different colors and patters. While some sunflowers put all their energy into producing one tall stalk with a single beautiful bloom on top, others spread out with multiple branches.
Despite their variety, many sunflowers bloom during the summer months and into a portion of the fall, with the middle of the summer being their peak season. That's why we believe it's time for everyone to soak up some sunflowers before they're gone for the season.
Only In Your State named one particular sunflower filed hiding in Nebraska that they believe more people should know about. It's called Arbor Day Farm and it's located in Nebraska City. Here's what they had to say about it:
This experience is unforgettable, and it’s made even more special by the fact that it’s so ephemeral. If you miss your chance to see the sunflowers this year, you have to be patient for another 50 or so weeks before you’ll have the chance again. It’s kind of a reminder to slow down and enjoy the beautiful things around us while we can.
