Visitors to Grinter Farms near Tonganoxie encouraged to be a part of social media sunflower 'guestbook'
It's almost Labor Day Weekend and folks at Grinter Farms have been busy getting ready for all of their guests in the coming days. Many of the sunflowers are blooming and ready for photos.
A local landmark that fills the countryside with a sea of yellow for a short spell each year soon should be buzzing again. Grinter Farms again has planted its crop — roughly 1 million sunflower seeds — and the radiant colors of thousands of sunflowers soon will be on display.
A popular photo backdrop is expected to be in prime form the next two weekends. Ted and Kris Grinter’s sunflowers should be ready for pictures in the coming days, according to Kris’ blog, krisgrinter.blogspot.com.
Kansas turns 153 on Wednesday, Jan. 29.
The Grinters lined up a few rows deep into their sunflower field Saturday morning to take their annual family photo. It was the ideal time: Around 8 a.m. the sun was glimmering off the yellow petals, but the air still was cool.
