Sunflower crop shines

Kitty Hockman-Nicholas of Hedgebrook Farm in Frederick County stands in a sunflower patch on her farm last week. She has grown sunflowers the past 10 or 15 years. This year she purchased 50 pounds of seed and now has hundreds of flowers at the farm, located along Shady Elm Road. She will let the flowers go to seed to feed the birds, squirrels and mice this winter.
