These impressive drone images show a huge field filled with more than 100,000 sunflowers, planted to read the word “hope.”
The stunning Ardross Farm field in Scotland spans 1.5 hectares, the size of four football fields, and recently flourished five months after it was planted.
The Reverend Douglas Creighton of East Neuk Trinity Church came up with the idea for a field of sunflowers in an attempt to cheer people up during the pandemic.
She asked farmer Claire Pollock to help her get off the ground and she agreed to plant more than 100,000 sunflowers in early May.
The couple hope the maze will bring joy to the local community, with 500 people walking through it when it opened last weekend.
It takes 20 minutes to complete the massive maze, and £ 2,000 ($ 2,766) has already been raised for local charities.
Reverend Creighton said of the project: “It is a bright and joyous thing for everyone in the community; We sow a little hope and optimism to show that not everything is pessimism.
“I even organized a live plantation during the confinement where people joined Zoom to watch.
Farmer Claire said, “We have always grown wildflowers to help the birds and spread some joy,” and said it has been great to do something that would make people smile and get local people involved.
“It’s a labyrinth of hope in a field of hope and we want it to be something fun and different.”
