August was the month of fire in BC. The smoke literally swallowed the warmth and the sun and turned summer into fall very quick. So we were craving for a little rest of summer and luckily found it at the Chilliwack Sunflower Festival. Our hearts were fulfilled immediately when we entered the property. Even the little bit of rain beginning of September couldn’t stop us. The beauty of over 5 acres with 17 different varieties of sunflowers is overwhelming. The bright friendly color makes you smile the whole time – promised! A highlight are the giant Mammoth sunflowers which almost look like a shower head when you stand under them. In conclusion we would say, a flower that follows the sun throughout the day is a happy flower ☺ and makes you happy too!
