A spectacular scene is in full bloom in the town of Middleton.
A 9-acre field of sunflowers at the Pope Farm Conservancy is the highlight at the educational preserve in its sixth year.
Mel Pope will host an annual free walking tour Wednesday evening from 6:30-8. Pope will discuss the history and features of the conservancy.
A 1,200-foot stone fence built in the 1840s-1850s that wraps around the field “really makes it special, that’s for sure,” Pope said.
The conservancy at 7440 W. Old Sauk Road is managed by the town of Middleton.
