Pleasant Hill Farm, 5859 124th Ave, Fennville MI ~ 6/8/23

What a feast for the eyes. This four acre parcel is filled with poppies and other wildflowers and is breathtaking.

The parcel is owned and managed by the owners of the blueberry farm nearby and the story behind the field is one of sadness, the death of their son. He is buried in Fennville Cemetery next to the flower field and the flowers were planted to honor him. It's a beautiful memorial.

You can't walk through the field but just around the perimeter, which we did.

We found an artist trying to capture the magic.

Make your way to flower field in the next few weeks if you want to see the poppies before they are finished for the year. The field is located just west of Fennville Cemetery and I've included maps at the end. Rest in peace, Sgt Donaldson, and much appreciation to your parents for creating such a lovely, peaceful place in your honor.
