I’ve never been to a sunflower field before so I can’t really compare the one in Cotswold Farm Park to any others. If you ask for my opinion, yes it’s a nice place to go to and I loved it. It’s perfect for photos and if you’re anything like me who’s got instagram in my mind almost the entire day then you’ll love it too. If you ask for my husband’s opinion though, he f*cking hated it. Lol.
“We’re the only ones without a kid here” said the husband as we’re walking towards Cotswold Farm Park’s entrance. As the name suggests, it’s a farm so there are loads of animal interactions that you can do – perfect for kids. We were there for the sunflower field though so we skipped all that, I don’t think I’d be up for it myself let alone the husband.
As soon as we reached the field, I could sense that the husband wasn’t very impressed. I on the other hand, was just way too happy to be surrounded by all these sunflowers! :p
Photos of course were taken immediately. I admit that the field itself isn’t as big as I was expecting but it’s good enough for me who’s never been to an actual sunflower field until then.
The Greek Mister’s mood perked up a bit though while we were in the field and even agreed to take some photos of me as we were walking through it. He pointed out that sunflowers are supposed to be higher than the ones in there and even googled what the average height is and yes, he’s correct. The ones in Cotswold Farm Park weren’t the average size but did it disappoint me? Not at all but then again as I’ve said, never been to anything like that before so I didn’t really care.
Admit it! That was a bit silly. he said
Not for me, I liked it! I replied defensively. Lol.
As I’m writing this blog post, I googled some photos of sunflower fields and I hate to admit it but the husband was right all along. The one at the Cotswold Farm Park was too small in field size as well as the height of the sunflowers. But even if he’s right, I think it was a good introduction for a novice sunflower fielder like I am. 🙂
