30 Acres of Beautiful Sunflowers Are Blooming in This Maryland Park

If you travel to Maryland this month, you’re in for a bright and delightful treat. A vast field of sunflowers is in bloom, and it’s quite a sight to behold.

The flowers are part of the McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area, and they are stunning. 30 rolling acres of sunflowers are currently in full bloom. The park features nine separate sunflower fields where you can walk and take as many pictures as you please.

The annual event takes place in the town of Poolesville. For two full weeks, residents and visitors to the area can take in the beautiful sight.

While this is a favorite flower of the South, you will likely see them anywhere warm weather is present. They love the heat and bloom during the summer.

They may not last long, but they are one of the most beautiful flowers you are going to run across.

The folks at the McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area do an excellent job caring for their flowers. They’ve even managed to stagger the times when their flowers will bloom so that the beauty of their park will last longer. Some fields are already in their peak bloom while others are starting to bloom.

Along with these beautiful flowers, the park has a lot more to offer visitors. According to The Washington Post, deer, wild turkey and over 200 species of birds are known to reside in the area.

The park is located just alongside the Potomac, which is a popular destination for bikers. It’s also only a 30-minute drive from Washington D.C., which makes it convenient for locals and visitors alike.

You can enjoy the flowers in full bloom through the weekend of July 28.
