Jen Wilson who created the Sunflower Maze on Dakeyne Farm in Mount Denson poses for a photo among the many thousands of sunflowers. This is the sixth year that she has built the maze. The first year they wanted to do something, a corn maze was suggested but they knew there was another near by so they decided against it. Then it was suggested to create a Sunflower Maze. Some thought it wouldn’t work. Now six years later it still attracts crowds for the 2 weeks the flowers are at their best. (Mark Goudge/SaltWire Network)
