YELLOW BLOOMS: Sunflowers shimmer in the summer sun in Chorleywood

 Published on: 17th August 2020   |   By: Amneet Kaur   |   Category: Uncategorized

People’s lives in Chorleywood have been brightened up after a sunflowers field was discovered.

Stretching as far as the eye can see, the beautiful sunflowers have been lifting spirits after months of lockdown.

We spoke to Juliette Morrison, a Pinner resident, who discovered the field through Instagram and sent us some lovely shots.

She said: “I saw the field of sunflowers on a friend’s Instagram and immediately knew that I wanted to visit. Imagine turning a corner and seeing a field of happiness.

“I visited Carpenters Wood on Sunday, August 9, early evening and really didn’t know where to find the flowers. My husband and I enjoyed a walk through the woods, listening to the nature, we saw horses and enjoyed the evening walk.

“When we turned the corner after walking through the beautiful tunnel we were met with the field of yellow flowers which really make anyone who sees them smile.

“I loved it so much that I took a friend later the same week, we got caught in the rain but again it didn’t matter because the field just radiates happiness.”

The tall single giant headed sunflowers usually bloom towards late summer and last for two to three weeks.

If you want to visit the field in Carpenters Wood here is how you can get there.

There is a footpath in between two houses on Whitelands Avenue into Carpenters Wood.

You walk up that footpath, turn right and walk along the back of the houses until you reach the Barrel Arch bridge under the Met line railway.  

Walk under the bridge and on the left there is the field.

Do you have anymore pictures you want to share with us?
