Fall, like every other season, signals change and transition. As summer turns to fall, we see the transition from the season of warmer weather and days spent at the beach, to the season coined “sweater weather”, with Mother Nature herself showing off her beauty by the changing leaves.
Aside from the changing colors of the leaves, one thing that fall certainly brings, are sunflowers. In peak season during the fall months, these flowers are the perfect fall staple. What is a better way to welcome the arrival of my favorite season than to be surrounded by sunflowers?!
With that in mind, I decided to do a photoshoot featuring me frolicking in a field of sunflowers.
The field, the symbol of “Babbette’s Seeds of Hope”, is located just on the outer limits of Eau Claire. Providing its visitors with the opportunity to walk through it, this field is located on a local family’s land. After the 2014 passing of the family’s matriarch, Babbette, due to Multiple Myeloma, the family planted the field and dedicated it to her in remembrance. Though you can walk through the field for free, donations are suggested. With the struggles of families dealing with illnesses in mind, Babbette’s donates a portion of the proceeds obtained through the donations and purchases of their products to hospitals, patient advocacy, and medical research. So, not only can you enjoy the beauty of this field, but you can do so while also helping a good cause!
