Is there anything that says summer more than a sunflower field? Growing up in Westerly, as soon as the weather started warming up everyone was talking about Buttonwood Farms and their famous ice cream. As it got on towards July however, you would start to hear excited chatter about going to visit their sunflower fields. My mother every year would say that this was the year we were going to get out to Griswold, CT to see them and take pictures and every year it…..wouldn’t happen. You know how it is. Life gets away from you, during the summer especially! Finally, though we did get the chance to visit and it was just as amazing as we’d heard it was.
