Sunflower Garden in Saraburi


A green worm enjoys feasting on the bright sunflower. My daughter took this photo.
Sunflowers are so bright that when they are planted in a vast farm, the place glows with warmth. Farmers in Saraburi, two-hour ride from Bangkok, grow acres of sunflower gardens and they are in full bloom in November until mid-December. So last weekend when the kids arrived, we headed there with friends right away to catch up with the blooms that would soon wither.

These flowers wonderfully follow the sun's direction.


 This time we want to take the nice view of the mountains, not the faces of the sunflowers as they just all together keep following the sun. Even 7-month old Jako enjoys the trip.

@CafebyJW, you must go there before they finally wither. The next batch isn't that robust anymore.
