Want to catch a few sunflowers before the season ends? Here are a few places with sunflowers in bloom or about to bloom. When dealing with nature, you may want to call or visit the website before going just to make sure the flowers are still in bloom. You can also expect bumble bees since they love sunflowers.

The Sunflower Garden in Westminster, MD
From their website: "We are a quaint little farm to get some flowers and take a few selfies! We aren't the big huge field of sunflowers, we are a cutting garden to get bouquets. Some people see our pictures posted and think the garden looks like that all the time, our flowers come and go but we try and keep it fresh. If possible check our FB page which is updated daily."
