It’s sunflower season!
>>PHOTOS: Yellow Springs Sunflowers
Get ready for your Instagram and Facebook feeds to be full of gorgeous photos amongst those tall, beautiful sunflowers.
Some are in bloom now, and others will be soon. It’s best to call ahead or check their Facebook pages for updates on the best time to capture that perfect pic.
Here are a few of our favorite places to go spend some time amongst the flowers:
TECUMSEH LAND TRUST
This may be the perfect weekend to see sunflowers in all their glory. The Tecumseh Land Trust expects the sunflower field to bloom around Sept. 15.
Every year a field along U.S. 68 on the Tecumseh Land Trust, just north of Yellow Springs (Tecumseh Land Trust, 4633 US-68) attracts bees as well as shutterbugs (we’re talking about YOU Instagrammers) when thousands of bright sunflowers bloom and cover several acres in gold. And of course, there are other fields of sunflowers, too!

POSSUM CREEK METROPARK
Four acres of sunflowers are a warm welcome for visitors to Possum Creek MetroPark, 4790 Frytown Rd. in Dayton.
Blooming in the field are standard, dwarf, black oil, and mammoth grey stripe sunflowers that are over 7 feet tall. The sunflowers are not only a friendly site, but will be used to teach about sustainability and as a habitat for pollinators and wintering birds.
WEST EUCLID AVENUE, SPRINGFIELD
A former industrial site has been revived as the home of a 1.2-acre sunflower field at West Euclid Avenue along the bike path in Springfield.
The renovation project is a joint effort between Keep Clark County Beautiful, National Trail Parks & Recreation District, Clark County Land Bank and the City of Springfield.
YANKEE STREET MARKET
The sunflowers have begun to bloom at the Yankee Street Market, 8491 Yankee St. in Centerville.
Time is limited so, capture that perfect summer shot that’ll make all your friends say “GOALS 🙌” while you still can.
