At the end of the week, I'll be going to Disney World with my family. I've started packing and making sure I have everything I need. One of the important essentials is my toothbrush.

Sunflower Maze - Goldpetal Farms - Chaptico, MD

Monday, June 24, 2019

For the past couple weeks, I had been seeing posts on Facebook about a sunflower maze at a local farm. I had never been to a sunflower maze and the pictures looked really nice, so I thought it would be fun to take the family to it one weekend.

We visited the Sunflower Maze at Goldpetal Farm in Chaptico, MD. The farm has been hosting sunflower mazes since 2015, with a different theme each year. This year's maze theme is inspired by Vincent Van Gogh's painting, Starry Night.
