The Shelby Farms sunflowers are on the verge of a comeback!
Every summer around the end of July or the beginning of August, golden yellow fields pop up in the middle of Shelby Farms on the AgriCenter side of the property.
People come from all over the Mid-South to snap pictures of the thousands of beautiful blooms.
It looks like those anxious shutterbugs won't have to wait long, when I drove by today the buds are starting to open up.
I talked with Jessica Watts at the ArgiCenter she tells me the blooms along Walnut Grove have been coming along slowly but they are coming up soon.
As for the flowers on the Germantown Road side, they have just recently been replanted. Dr. Bruce Kirksey says the amount of water in the area is making it a little harder on the sunflowers this year.
Keep your eyes peeled I think the beautiful blooms will be busting out eveywhere soon!
