Sunflowers look as though they are permanently smiling, so how happy would you be walking through a sunflower maze?  There are many sunflower farms close to Toronto that could make for a great  day trip.  Some of the farms Instagram accounts provided these fabulous images, and To Do Canada provides a list of farms to visit with address and entrance fees if applicable. Happy sunflowering!

Sunflower Kingdom! We’ve had lots of feedback about our Sunflower Kingdom & we want to make sure you know what to expect! We have planted shorter sunflowers in many areas of the field for the kids to get their perfect picture with a too! This way it’s not just green in the back of their photo. We are awaiting several buds to bloom still and anticipate the fields to be even more beautiful on the long weekend! Our lookout tower has larger than life sunflowers that have yet to bloom. We are anxiously awaiting them, as you can imagine it is SUPER DUPER hard for us to gauge exactly when everything will bloom. We can predict the time of year but never the exact date. We’d like to thank everyone for their patience in the meantime. ?? . . . . . #sunflowerkingdom #bloom #nature #beauty #sunflowers #farming #andrewsfarm #andrewsscenicacres #andrewsfarmmarketandwinery #shoplocal #supportsmallbusiness #local #halton #milton
