A day trip to the Sunflower fields

Monday, August 15, 2016
After the Knoxville News Sentinel announcement this fields of bright yellow sunflowers have become one of the major tourist attractions.  Hundreds of folks visit the East Tennessee to see the sunflowers display.  This year, the sunflowers are planted in a new location. Over 400 acres of land managed by TWRA at Forks Of The River Wildlife Management area, located on McClure Lane south of Ijams Nature Center, Knoxville TN. It is free to the public.

The first few weeks of July you'll find the fields carpeted with towering, bright yellow sunflowers. It's simply spectacular! There are many fields along the way, we stopped and took photos at some fields.

Have you ever been to sunflower fields in East Tennessee? Do you like it there? Share your experience with me in the comments !

Blessed are those who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.



Ever since I discovered that these fields existed not far from our home. I had been waiting patiently all summer for the flowers to bloom.  When it finally happened, we spend about an hour and half to see these golden beauties for ourselves.



Always look at the brighter side of life,  just like sunflower which looks upon the sun not the dark clouds. 😍🌻
