Painting with friends is such a great way to spend the day. 

Especially when the storm clouds pass by, and the sun comes out...

and you are surrounded by tall fields of SUNFLOWERS! 

What a golden day!

This wonderful place is Buttonwood Farm in Griswold, CT.  They run a program called, "Sunflowers for Wishes"...and this is the week when the flowers are at their peak. They are sold in bouquets to lucky folks like you - and ALL the proceeds go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation for children.  There are hay rides and "Cow-Train-Rides" (which is a pretty cute ride) - so take the kids & the grammas & buy some flowers for your honey! It's a nice trip out to the 'country'!
