300 acres of sunflowers bloom in Harford

By Washington Post editors

They are back and nearly at the peak of their pulchritude. Grab your cameras and set your sights on the fields of sunflowers lending their brilliant color to northern Harford County, The Baltimore Sun reports.

The perky yellow blooms that dominated vistas throughout Jarrettsville, Norrisville, White Hall and Madonna last year have returned. Sunflowers are standing tall across about 300 acres of farm fields, and, if last year is any gauge, hundreds will stop and take in their beauty.

"There is already a lot of yellow showing," said Nancy Rose, matriarch of the family that sowed sunflowers across their Clear Meadow Farm. "The hot weather this summer has brought the flowers on quickly. They are really coming up everywhere we planted them."
