It’s a crappy rainy day, so I thought I’d share photos from my amazing day trip to Bogle Seeds sunflower field near Toronto. After finding out that the sunflowers were in full bloom, le bf and I set off on an adventure of sorts, determined to find this magical place and take as many photos as my camera could hold.
To be honest with you, even though I had high expectations, I was still floored by the sight in front of us – an endless sea of yellow and green, framed by blue skies with an occasional pop of white clouds – it was beautiful. We roamed around a bit stunned, took photos, then took some more. Other visitors were more prepared, bringing step stools and mini ladders – anything to capture the “money” shot. In lieu of a ladder, I ended up jumping up and down wherever the sunflowers were a bit too tall to the amusement of some Chinese tourists. Whatever, not embarrassed.
I’ve seen so many beautiful flower fields photos on Instagram and online, and I’m so happy that I was finally able to find something just as wonderful so close to home. Sunflower and lavender fields in France may look like an unattainable dream, but a quick drive outside of Toronto, there are local gems just waiting to be discovered. One down, many more to go!
More after the jump!
