I went out to McKee Beshers WMA today to check on the sunflowers. They are not in good shape - the field at Sycamore Landing is fairly small, very dense, many blooms past peak. The ones in the field on Hunting Quarter Rd are covered with kudzu. Neither place is in good enough shape for 30+ people to photograph as a group this weekend.
So we're heading back to Brookside Gardens
We'll meet in the lower parking lot at 7 AM - this is the parking lot at the Conservatory where the Butterfly exhibit is (doesn't open until 10 AM). We'll photograph for a couple of hours - and then anyone who wants to head out for a bit to eat - we'll head to the Panera in the Aspen Hill Shopping Center - at the intersection of Connecticut Ave and Aspen Hill Road - at about 9:15.
I'd really hoped we could photograph the sunflowers this weekend -but from what I saw today - they're just not in good enough shape.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday
