Sunflower maze in the calm of Southern Maryland

The McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area in Poolesville, Md. is a great field of sunflowers. I really enjoyed it until everyone found out and the place was overrun. So I have a new alternative for you in another direction – Ladybugs Alive.

Head to Chaptico in Southern Maryland where a family farm turned a section into sunflowers for the birds to eat and people to wander. The maze isn’t too hard, but not simple either. You’ll be glad to find the end. But it’s fun to walk for a short while before finding those blessed picnic tables in the shade.

The sunflowers should peak around July 1 so head there this weekend.
