Next to the fairgrounds in New Paltz was this farm growing corn and sunflowers! This photo just doesn't do it justice. It was hundreds, probably thousands of mammoth sunflowers. WOW!
The site was amazing it really made me smile. My husband and I pulled the car over into a dirt road so that we could take in the beauty and take some photos. There were a lot people doing the same thing as us. A bunch of cars pulled over just to take photos too. It's amazingly beautiful.
I really wanted to buy some flowers, but we saw no one on this farm. It was a Sunday, so they probably had the day off. It looked like many of the sunflowers were going to seed, so its likely they are grown for seed and not really for the flower itself.
Mammoth doesn't even describe the gargantuan size of these beauties. These easily were 7 or 8 feet tall!
I just loved the farm equipment on the property too. It was so neat! I love Fall in upstate New York!!
