    @Brian, I don't think your photo is recent, is it? I went there on the second week of July and all they have is corn, sad looking corn. I stood by the rocks and didn't see any sunflowers. I didn't walk further from where this photo was taken. Question: do you know if the sunflowers are planted toward the back of the farm? I would like to go back if there are flowers. Oldbrich's Gardens have the butterflies now until August 12.

    @Brian, I looked at the metadata and the photo was taken on July 29. This answers my above question. Were you right at the top of the hill as you come from the parking area? This is where I was.

    Yes these are photos from Sunday. Near the entrance and farm house is corn fields and they look good so must have been watered. North of the corn fields, just past the top of the hill, past the parking lots, is the sunflower field.

    Thank you Brian for sharing the information. I was away for a month and did not check the site. The sunflower is cool. I plan to go there this weekend. I don't' know if it is too late. is the farm at 7440 West Old Sauk Road Middletown? Look forward to seeing you tonight.

    Yes I think the park address is 7440 West Old Sauk Road. Go West on Old Sauk and it will be on your right before the intersection with Pioneer road. The sunflowers face East so morning is probably best. But yahoo images already has nice photos of it so maybe we don't need to bother after all: http://images.search.yahoo.com/search/images?_adv_prop=image&fr=fptb-amo-s&va=pope+farm+park+middleton

    Thanks Brian. Hey, maybe we can do better than the ones in Yahoo? Loan, at what time are you going? Maybe I can join you, maybe other people wants to go too.

    Alfredo, sorry that I cannot go today, not feeling very well. I don't think I can go tomorrow either. It sounds like the morning is best for this. I hope that you can go and look forward to seeing beautiful pictures from you. Have a great weekend, going out shooting pics!

    Loan, I went in the morning and it is the best time to be there.
