I've got a thing for flowers—and especially flowers in the wild. Each spring I go searching for Cherry Blossoms and in the summer I look forward to the local lotus. Also on my list of annual flower visits are the sunflower fields of Maryland. In past years, I've sought out privately-owned fields that line backcountry roads. But this year I heard about the McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area, and I had to see it in person. The McKee-Beshers WMA includes rows upon rows of sunflowers across more than 40 acres in 8 fields; the fields are maintained by the state with the goal of supporting diverse wildlife populations and their habitats.
