It was a great sunny day for an afternoon excursion (and to support a great cause). We visited Buttonwood Farm in Griswold during their “Sunflowers for Wishes” fundraiser. Ice cream is a specialty of the farm. We enjoyed many photo ops strolling through the fields of sunflowers and on our way out purchased some sunflowers to brighten our homes and have a memory of a beautiful day.
A late picnic lunch was enjoyed lakeside at scenic Hopeville Pond State Park.
