Autumn Beauty Sunflowers Bringing in Autumn at Fruitlands
Right now at our farm and B&B there are thousands upon thousands of sunflower blossoms. The bees, butterflies and birds (goldfinches in particular) are just in heaven. Even our breakfast table has a bouquet of sunflowers on it.
Although we have always had sunflowers planted here. as part of the solidarity community action that was born here this spring, Vermont Plants Sunflowers for Ukraine, we planted many more than we had in past years. They are mostly Autumn Beauty and the much shorter Orange Hobbits. Both are multi branching. They have been blooming for a month and will continue for weeks more.
We invite you to stop and to walk through our sunflowers whether or not you are here as a B&B guest, farm customer or just passing by.
