Buttonwood Farm Sunflower festival and noble cause in Connecticut

"Light-enchanted sunflower, thou
Who gazest ever true and tender
On the sun's revolving splendour." Pedro Calderon de la Barca









I have been a sunflower adherent but not as much until I saw the Buttonwood sunflower farm. Tucked away from the claustrophobic city, this serene scene of sunflowers in quint town Griswold, thousands of sunflowers blooming in 14 acres of land is surreal. About 50 miles away from the capital of CT, Hartford this picturesque farm enhanced with meadows and barn houses, historic stone walls and cows, and of course, farm-made ice cream also contributes towards a great cause. A bunch of fresh-cut sunflowers will cost you a $10.00 donation and 100% of the proceeding goes to  Sunflowers-For-Wishes for children with critical illnesses. If you happen to live nearby or visit this area make sure to witness this gorgeous farm and also contribute towards the noble cause. 
It was my pleasure to visit last weekend.  You can check Lavender Farm  and Rose Garden.
