Sunflowers In Bloom

It’s sunflower season and thanks to Diana Burress and her husband Walter, who plants these beautiful flowers each year and opens their field to the public for free, many family photos and senior portraits will be taken during the 10 day window that the flowers are in bloom.  

Diana Burress, B Realty of Augusta, provided this sunflower field to the public free of charge each year.

“I love sunflowers,” said Burress.  “Many years ago my husband planted a few sunflowers around the house for me to enjoy and I would invite my clients and their families to come and take pictures. “ 

Burress is a Realtor located in Augusta, Kansas. 

“After a few years, he started planting out in this field and more people started coming, just by word-of-mouth,” she said. 

Burress keeps her clients and the public informed when the field is in bloom through her Facebook page “Diana Burress – B Realty Realtor/Broker” 

Sierra Marie Bonn, Miss Southwest, with Diana Burress. Bonn first learned of the sunflower field when she represented the community as Miss Augusta 2019.

Their sunflower field is located Southwest of Augusta off Thunder Road and 115th Terrace and is free and open to the public.  

“We don’t charge people to come and take photos,” said Burress “otherwise, it would be like every other sunflower field and we aren’t like everybody else.”
